Viharamahadevi Park, Colombo (Sri Lanka)

Located in the heart of Colombo city, Viharamahadevi Park is also known as Victoria Park. Situated next to the national museum of Colombo, it is Colombo’s largest public park with an area of 50 acres. It is named after the mother of Sinhalese King Dutugamunu. Viharamahadevi Park in Colombo is well maintained with organized grass, palm trees, and beautiful paved pathways. There are also wood and concrete seating spaces inside the park. There is also a small aquarium on the eastern side of the park, entry to which requires a ticket which is very cheap. Overall, the park is quite beautiful and a good place to spend some time at leisure and enjoy with friends and family.

Viharamahadevi Park History

During the Second World War, the park was occupied by the British Army and was named Victoria Park. Maintained and operated by the municipal council of Colombo, the park remains open for 24 hours. Home to a magnificent golden statue of Buddha, the park is also notable for palm trees, a mini zoo, and clean walking paths.

Having gone through recent renovation work, the park has clean walkways, playgrounds, and comfy benches, and visited by plenty of urbanites every day. People with family and loved ones come here to enjoy a sunny day or catch an afternoon nap. Besides the statue of Lord Buddha, the park features a series of water fountains, mini zoo, and many more things. There is no Viharamahadevi Park tickets as it's a public park.

The park’s beauty is enhanced during the spring season as the various species of flowers that bloom. Visitors can admire lush greenery and various species of palm trees lined along the walking paths. A water pool and an aquarium at the center of the park is the main highlight. Kids can enjoy elephant and horse rides in the park as well as swings, slides, and more. The zoo at Viharamahadevi Park is home to many birds and animals such as leopard, cheetah, lion, and deer. The western side of the park features a public library and the Cenotaph War Memorial. Cycling is another popular activity to do in Viharamahadevi Park. The park premise has well-placed intermittent resting points with benches and seating areas.

Joseph's 5 days trip to Colombo

We had a pleasant trip. But the Itinerary is skewed towards commercial shopping. So better to have our own itinerary.

Pushpendra's 6 days trip to Colombo

Journey from Newara Ella to Banting was long and exhaustive. It took almost full day. There should be a break. Plan should such that maximum distance between points about 100 KM. Instead of Sigiriya journey can start from Chilaw. Sigiriya fort and Newara Ellya.

Siddharth's 4 days trip to Colombo

We had a really nice Sri Lanka trip covering Srigirya, Trincomalee, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. The hotels were amazing for both nights at Cinnamon group. While the driver, Mr Sisira Kumar drove well, promptly showed up everyday, there were issues following our planned itinerary. He did not want to show us places and insisted repeatedly that he was having to work long hours (especially on our last day where we travelled from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya and then to Colombo). He did not wish to follow our itinerary and wanted to drop us in Colombo directly from Kandy. We had to call the travel agent and align the driver with our plans. Additionally, while the itinerary was suggested by the tour company, each morning we had to inform the driver about the day's itinerary, instead of him telling us. Overall, the trip was good except for these minor issues with the driver. I wish the travel company clearly communicates the itinerary with their drivers and asks them to be proactive.

Inderdeep's 6 days trip to Colombo

Travel triangle helped us find the best agent and quote. The services provided by the agent were better than expected. My son had travel sickness. The driver went beyond the call of his duty and found us a local doctor in late evening hours and also hopped several chemists to collect all the prescribed medication he needed.

Mohit's 3 days trip to Colombo

It was a great experience for us, we enjoyed the hotels and their services. But overall we suffered for vegetation food. You should take care of the vegetarian travelers. As you have mentioned in your itinerary that you will arrange jain food also, please remove it from that because you are unable to understand what is jain food and you are not promise keepers.

Mohit Jain New delhi

Rohit's 10 days trip to Colombo

We had a great family holiday courtesy Travel Triangle and Direct Link, our travel agent. Direct Link were thorough professionals and our representative, Dilhari, took excellent care of our needs and requests, including last minute ones during the trip. We were well accompanied by Mr Sana who guided and chauffeured us through Sri Lanka during our trip. Would very highly recommend Travel Triangle for planning holidays and Direct Link for Sri Lanka.
