Built in 1876, the building of the museum was founded by the British Governor at the time. The largest museum in Sri Lanka, it houses carvings, swords, masks, guns, art and statues from the ancient and colonial periods of Sri Lanka!

A temple complex in the heart of Colombo housing several religious artefacts to look at, the Gangaramaya temple is located roughly 45 minutes from Pegasus Reef Hotel. If you’re planning a day out in Colombo, stop by at this temple for a spiritual experience!
