“Breathtaking Lights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Standing below the lighthouse...an actual functional lighthouse...on a Saturday evening while attending a party at The Galley was a pretty surreal experience

“An ordinary construction at the coast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

If you have never seen a lighthouse in your life you may visit this typical construction at the coast of Colombo. It's quite ordinary, not beautiful, not ugly, just - very simple.

“Massive and hot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

It's a lighthouse and you can't go up inside it. It's steaming hot during the day time. Security was lacks the day we went so we could walk around it and take pictures. Could see the new port complex being build from there. Not on a through road. The through road is blocked due to security reasons so be prepared to walk back the same way you came.
