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. Food vendors in the park sell everything from local pickles to fruits.

    Sri lankan travel agent Chamodi is very helpful and kind. Driver and tour guide Jagath is also very caring and understanding Full marks to the sri lankan team Travel triangle though on the other hand who charge you $11 as fees really gets missing from the scene once you pay up No calls no updates n
    egligible response from travel triangle. In my opinion if you are booking through travel triangle try and book directly from the local agent The platform and tge travel triangle agent dont offer much of assistance
