A usual busy street in Colombo, but it's an art oasis, where individual painters display and sell some amazing paintings, adjoins viharamahadevi park

If you can take a stroll along green path you will really enjoy it , at whatever time of the day. On one side is the Colombo "s Viharamaha Devi park while on the other side is the rear of the National Museum, then the Art gallery and adjoining it the Nelum Pokuna theater
