Colombo is the largest city and former capital of Sri Lanka, a port on the Indian Ocean.

The town Hall of Colombo, built in  in 1927 in the neoclassical style in front of the Viharamahadevi Park, is the headquarters of the Colombo Municipal Council and the office of the mayor.

It is the meeting place for the elected Municipal Council, and today it houses the administrative staff of the council. Its garden is the venue for many rallies and concerts all year round.
