World Trade Center , Colombo Overview

Colombo is famous for many old colonial buildings that clustered mostly in the old Fort area, and the most famous of them are the two iconic skyscrapers, the twin towers of the World Trade Center constructed within six years, i.e. from 1990-1996.

The World Trade Center in Colombo is an architectural delight, and it houses many companies, both domestic and international corporations. The lobby area is quite impressive with some elaborate decorations to greet the visitors while the rest of the building has offices, banks, shops, etc. It is a cozy and spacious tower during the weekend and gives you a taste of tranquility in the bustling Colombo. This magnificent building was considered state of the art for its time when it was constructed. Food, shopping, business, and so much more under one roof!
