Viharamahadevi Park

Sri Lanka / Asia

Viharamahadevi Park is a public park within the Cinnamon Gardens in front of the Town Hall.  It was built by the British colonial administration and is the oldest and largest park of Colombo.  It was originally called Victoria Park but renamed after the mother of King Dutugamunu in 1958.  During the Second World War, it was occupied by British and Australian troops, and then restored and re-opened in 1951.  A huge Buddha statue now stands where previously there was one of Queen Victoria.

This beautiful open park offers a variety of activities to accommodate all ages. There is a playground for children and many walks to explore. Within the park, there are many pools, fountains and Buddhist statues, which add to its ambience.  The Town Hall is best seen from this park.
