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.

    Amol's 6 days trip to Colombo

    I traveled to Sri Lanka with my wife to celebrate our 1st marriage anniversary. It was our first ever visit to Sri Lanka and I would say we were lucky to book it with Direct Link Private Limited. Our guide for the tour was Ismath and he did a fantastic job throughout the trip. Our journey was carefully curated to help us experience the maximum number of places in the 5 days that we had for the visit. The choice of hotels was fantastic throughout. Nuwara Eliya was the highlight of our trip - the place is simply magical and the hotel chosen by Mr. Arshad was amazing. I would recommend everyone to choose Direct Link as their travel partners. I look forward to visiting the country again soon once the pandemic ends. Will connect with Direct Link again and would request the services of Ismath once again. Thank you guys for the memorable trip.

    Nagrajan's 5 days trip to Colombo

    Hi First of Thanks to Travel Triangle - Relax Lanka for this Srilanka Trip - their are some CONS AND PROS- First of all thanks to Driver /Guide Mr. Sanjay he was amazing person - and was very help full throughout the Tour pros :- All the hotels was very Good and luxurious - and in all the hotels dinner was their so didn't faced any problem of food Cons : we have paid 35K for two person thats ok - but for the all the activities we had to pay the Extra charges - 1. like elephant safari - we paid : 3KINR which was not at all worth you can just see some 4 elephants 2.. Madhu River we have paid 60$ for two person for just a ride of 1hours - Again it was not worth - when we checked in the NET it was just 400RS person - We feel like we have been cheated 3. tortoise watching _ we paid 2K INR - again its just a small house hold person running the tortoise park -- not worth One more suggestion they ask for charges for everything- even before travelling we asked them about Corona Crisis they said its nothing over here we reached on 11th March and from 12th March Srilanka has started their to close many things - if they have informed about this we would postphoned our Trip - Even we have enquired about VISA - they have informed us that for indian citizen it is on Arrival - its was not at all True - before travelling we need to take online visa which compulsory and it is free for indian Citizen - But Relax lanka was asking for 20$ fee for visa if i want to take it from them -- it was good i done it from my side Would suggest instead of going to Srilanka - i would suggest plan for NORTH EAST - which is worth value for money

    Abhishek's 6 days trip to Colombo

    I missed my flight from chennai to colombo due to, your improper connecting flight scheduling, Indigo flight from Delhi to Chennai being delayed and due to reschedule of Indigo flight from 5:55am to 5:40am and by the time I reached the checkin gates were already closed.Due to which I have to book another flight from Chennai to Colombo on Sri lankan Airlines that costed me around Rs. 13794.There is no update from your side that what all are you doing to get my money reimbursed from Indigo because of missed flights as there was no fault of mine for the same and your travel agent told me that they are helpless and you your self need to talk to the Indigo Airlines. Secondly I need a complete distribution of my bills explaining me clearly my flights cost, travel cost, hotels and others which ideally should be done before payment even but I have not received it even after payments and even after my trip

    We undertook 11 days tour of Sri Lanka from 29th Feb to 10th March 2020 and visited Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara-Eliya, Mirissa, Bentota and Colombo. The entire tour was well planned by the travel agency and it was quite comfortable tour. Taxi driver with luxurious sedan was with us for the entire tour from day one and provided Sim card for connectivity and also worked as guide. We stayed for 2 days at certain places but no local sightseeing on the first day was arranged by the Agency. At some places food was not to our taste. In all tour was very satisfying and comfortable.

    I had one of the best experience with SEEMAX Travels. I was on a vacation to Srilanka for 6 days with family and my friends family. Seemax travel arranged each and everything in an organized manner and every thing was up to the mark.Driver Rajakaruna was a very professional and amazing person. He picked up on time from the Airport and also helped us in exploring places in Srilanka. All the Hotels were awesome with all amenities, Food was really great and more than our expectation. They were able to cover all the places as per the itinerary which was requested by us. I would like to thank Dilshan and team for making this holiday an amazing experience. I would also want to recommend SEEMAX TRAVEL FOR YOUR TRAVEL EXPERIENCE. It is one-stop for all your travel info at affordable prices. Seemax Travel is trustworthy.
