Colombo City: Colombo is an interesting and colourful tapestry of many races, religions and cultures and a city that showcases a wonderful colonial heritage blended in its many moods. Known as ‘Kolon thota’ , the native name of the city meaning ‘port’ it became ‘Colombo’ with the advent of the colonial rulers to the island.
