Synopsis

The colonial history of Sri Lanka can be seen through its iconic colonial bungalows.

The imprint of the Europeans on Ceylon was most evident with the spectacular Walauwas, built for the powerful class that formed the bridge between the colonial administration and the locals.

The fusion of European and local Sri Lankan architecture produced extraordinarily unique tropical mansions.
