“Historical sacred church.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Go there if you are having a faith. So many Catholics and non Catholics are coming to pray here. It is the firm belief your prayers are being answered through the intervention of St Anthony. No point going there to see the building or fun as you may be disturbing the faithful devotees. The Church feast of St Anthony is on June 13th and it will be very much crowded then. When the Pope visited Sri Lanka he visted this church to say prayers.

Behind the church you will see a beautiful view of the Colombo Harbour.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

A church with many devotees, but nothing real special to see in the building. Don't worth the detour!

“Patron Saint of Lost Article”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is one of the most holiest catholic churches in Sri Lanka where even non-catholics come to prey & ask for St. Anthony's blessing. Many have experienced their prayers being answered here. The church is located in the busy streets of Colombo 13.

A must visit site if you're in Colombo, along with the St. Lucias Cathedral which is about 5 minutes away from here.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Very nice church. They have mass in Sinhalese, Tamil and English, but be careful how you dress when you go there they are very strict on the dress code. Shorts, sandals for guys are frowned upon and for girls if even your shoulders are showing they wont let you go in.
