Overview
Originally a fort during the Portuguese and Dutch periods but now simply the commercial centre of the country and the site of most major offices, big hotels, some of the better shops, airline offices, banks, main post office, immigration office, travel agents and restaurants.
Within Fort are several places of tourist interest which can be conveniently seen on foot. The colonial buildings include the Presidential Secretariat, previously the Parliament House, the Grand Oriental Hotel, built in the mid 19th century as barracks for soldiers, and the Lighthouse Clock Tower.
The Fort of Colombo begins where the Galle Face Green ends, at the old Parliament building, now used as the Presidential Secretariat, and where the Beira Lake spills into the Indian Ocean.
The town extends along Galle Buck and Queen Street on the west and Lotus Road towards the East, encompassing the Colombo Harbor and a whole arena of business and merchant enterprises. York Street, Prince Street, Bristol Street are some of the other streets within the town which eventually moves towards the bazaar town of the Pettah.
Old Colonial buildings criss-cross the town displaying their magnificence of structure and architecture along almost every street.
