“Not noticeble”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The prison cell is located by the road side in busy fort area in Colombo, in a land owned by a private entity. This is noticeble unless you happen to go there and accidently seethat and inquire what it is? More prominance should be given to a imprtant site like this

“Not very well noticed!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is in Colombo Fort and is not very much noticed by the general public unless otherwise they are directed to the location. Its a very small cell where King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe, the last king of Sri Lanka was kept before he was taken away. Something good to see for knowledge.

“nice little find”

Nothing special but a nice little find if you come across it - not necessarily worth hunting for though.

“Unassuming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stumbled upon this by accident while walking to the bank! I knew there was a cell in the vicinity but didnt know where it was. This tiny cell was where the last king of Kandy was imprisoned until he was sent away to Vellore in Madras in 1816. The structure is well maintained and looks quite new.
