Colombo – Sri Lanka’s largest metropolis situated very close to the administrative capital of Sri Jayawardenapura , Kotte, seems totally out of proportion with the rest of the country. The city has seen a rapid development taking place during the last ten years and the beauty and the charm of the past glory has been somewhat restored to portray the proud heritage of the city. It tends to become quite congested and chaotic with an influx of traffic in the mornings and the exodus in the evening. Sprawling for sixty kilometers along the island’s western seaboard in a bewildering straggle of suburbs and shantytowns which are home to over two million people, Colombo’s vast extent and confusing layout make it difficult to get to grips with.
