The relic has played an important role in the local politics since ancient times; it’s believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country, which caused the ancient kings to protect it with great effort.

Colombo has been a flourishing sea port for centuries when ancient seafarers traded in pearls, precious stones, elephants, peacocks, cinnamon and other spices. Today Colombo is a fascinating blend of the East & West, the past and present and the old & new….

The name "Colombo", introduced by the Portuguese in 1505, is believed to be a derivative from the classical Sinhalese name Kolon thota, meaning "port on the river Kelani" and also been suggested that the name may have been derived from the Sinhalese name Kola-amba-thota which means "Harbour with leafy mango trees".

Due to its large harbour and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, the city of Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. Made the capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815, and its status as capital was retained when the nation became independent in 1948. In 1978, when administrative functions were moved to Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte, Colombo was designated as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka. After a city tour continue to Negombo.
