Our Tuk tuk guide took us here and explained about the importance of the place and how much respect is shown to their leader that drove them forward to independence. Good views from here and good photo opportunities

The Independence square is a very important monument of Colombo.When I visited it was too hot but inside the building it was calm. There were live painting going on. It remind me of a similar structure of Paris. It overlooks the lush green garden with big trees. Nice place to visit

Set in the middle of Colombo, Sri Lanka is the monument to independence from British rule. A few stairs to climb with a view of nearby Victoria Public Park. Set along the edge of the monument is a line up of lions which we were warned not to sit on since the monument is important to the people of Sri Lanka. Not much to see at the monument itself. Worth a 10 minute visit if you happen to be driving by but.......

Really pretty space but again, like some of the other Colombo open-air attractions, there is not a lot of shade so wear a hat and best go after 5pm, when the day starts losing its heat.
