Introduction to Colombo
The capital of Sri Lanka is called Colombo. It is debatable how the name came into existence. While some believe that it was a distortion from the old name of Kolam, others believe it was taken from the Coconut palm. No matter which fact the name was taken from it is known as Colombo by everyone today. The city is the largest town in the island country of Sri Lanka. It is the economic capital of the country as well as the administrative one.
A capital city always has a wide range of activities available for locals as well as for visitors and Colombo is no exception to this rule and offers numerous outdoor sports and activities such as water sports, golf, cricket (very much part of the culture here!), canoeing and whitewater rafting on the rivers nearby . If you are looking more for relaxation, yoga, and Ayurveda massages are also popular.
