Onem of the most famous cricket ground in Sri Lanka. It's So close to Colombo and International Airport. So it's best place to watch cricket match live. But around the ground is always busy.

It was surprising that common visitors like us can enter into this famous stadium just to have a look around. It was more surprising to see some young boys relaxing there after their school exams. Felt nice to see around this famous stadium. Ganesh J

Friendly locals who evidently love cricket spill into the stadium and fill it up into an excited, bubbling pot of enthusiasm as each wicket is taken. Yes, the entrance of spectators isn’t managed regimentally but not once will you feel unsafe. The local residents add...More

A typical example of how money earned is mismanaged,the toilets are probably the filthiest toilets you would find at any international sporting venue,and even most other facilities were below par!

The grandstand has a really good view but we had trouble with locals. And as far as we can tell so did other families. If you can afford it go in the box. Didn’t access the toilets so unable to comment. Hope that helps
