Surrounded by a well-manicured lawn the Town Hall is the seat of many developmental activities you see within Colombo. The building houses the administrative staff of the Colombo Municipal Council. The expansive grounds has been venue of many events both political and leisure. One can easily see that the structure of the Town Hall resembles the White House of the United States.
