Colombo Sunset City Safari by TukTuk

1 review
Step aboard a tuk tuk—the preferred mode of travel for locals—to explore Colombo at sunset. Your private driver/guide will ferry you through the city streets, watching local life pass you by as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean. Snacks and refreshments are provided, as well as a full Sri Lankan dinner at a local restaurant.
USD 80.00 per adult

Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque is in the centre of the port area of old Columbo and it is a very unique building with an impressive architecture. It is located in the middle of a busy market area and it is not possible to do not admire this great building.

Lovely architecture and very grand - you don’t realise how tall it actually is. It’s in a very busy part of Colombo so brace yourself. The women’s section is at the top and I found it a little hard to navigate around.

This is an impressive building, built in 1908, with the architecture that combines Gothic and Neo-classical styles, located within walking distance (10-15 mins) from Fort Colombo Railway Station. The Mosques was closed for visitors for 2 weeks due to CONVID-19 outbreak during our visit, but open for Muslims for prayer. It was already very stunning looking at the exterior of the mosque and very instagramable building. Must visit for travellers in Colombo.

This Mosgue in the centre of the port area of old Columbo is a very unique building. It is a one off and well worth seeing, it sit"s in the middle of a very busy shopping and market area, but its outside facade simply stands out.
