Graceful view on Colombo’s shoreline

Colombo, WP, Sri Lanka
11 Kudos
As the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo is located right on the coast in the southern part of the island. I was there for work in South Asia, and was going to be headed to the interior, but I did get a chance to see a bit of the capital first. The harbor’s strategic location has made it important to traders for some 2,000 years, and the city became the capital under British rule, and later upon independence in 1948. Today Colombo is part of a megacity of almost 6 million, although only a fraction of those live within the limits of the city proper.
