Last year, this time, I was planning my first trip outside India, to Srilanka, triggered by an ultra cheap spicejet fare of Rs 4008 for the return trip.(Sadly spicejet has discontinued that low fare and convenient timing, else I had plans of one more visit) While many of the Srilankan trip photos and text have already been shared [read them here], few have missed out. No travel for me in Jan 2012, so recollecting old trips and publishing few pending topics.
In this post, sharing pictures clicked at Srilankan National Museum in Colombo.
National Museum Colombo is the largest in the country and is maintained by the government. National Museum is located in a nice white building complex in the heart of city. Only a part of it housed artifacts and was open to tourists.
The Museum was built in 1877. Besides the regular items you would find in any museum (historical stones, swords, weapons, dress materials, photos etc) a huge whale skeleton was added attraction
