Owner description

Colombo has been a flourishing sea port for centuries even before when ancient seafarers traded in pearls, precious stones, elephants, peacocks, cinnamon and other spices. Today Sri Lanka's commercial capital is a fascinating blend of the east and the 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 "Harbor with leafy mango trees"
