“On your way Home”

We used to go to Cargills for marketing almost every week. It is a place you can buy most of daily requirement . They offer goods at a reasonable price too.

“Historical Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Once up on a time Cargills and Millers office were situated. Millers (one time giant of selling photographic items) is not there (I guess). Cargills have there main registered office and now with a Super Market. This building is there for centuries and in the same red colour walls. This is just an historic building but a land mark to Fort area. You can take photos.
No entry fees

A well maintained building of historical value, its a good thing this building is well maintained for the new generation to know what buildings were like in the days gone by as they would know only High rise buildings.

“Nothing Much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

I just pass by this building while walking from Pettah to Galle Face. Nothing much about this building, I did not even go in after reading some reviews. You wont really miss much if you did not see this.
