Nelum Pokuna
Colombo 7

The Nelum Pokuna Theater is an incredible and easily recognizable monument overlooking Town Hall and the vast verdant space of the Viharamahadevi Park, a stunning landmark left behind by the former president.  It is a truly modern building, with its intricate and rather interesting design that does indeed resemble a lotus in bloom, inspired by the ancient Lotus Bath of Polonnaruwa. Its floor covers a space of over 14,000 square meters and has an incredible moving stage which takes one from the orchestra to the stage level. It was a joint project by both Chinese architects and the Sri Lankan government, begun in 2006 and completed in 2011. It was opened to the public in December of the same year.
