  • The Khan Clock Tower stands at the entrance of the legendary Pettah Market. Dating back to the early 20th century, the clock tower was established by a Paris family bearing the last name Khan  more »
  •  Around this clock tower, the surrounding area is decorated with colonial architecture from the British Ceylon period. It's a quaint place, but it's a shame that the city hasn't made any effort to make use of it for tourism. Now that the capital has moved, there are many vacant buildings.  If you use museums and shops well, you will probably see a lot of tourists come. Because the area is narrow and there is a lot of traffic, it is quite dangerous to take a commemorative photo.  The solicitation of tuk tuk is also quite persistent, so be prepared.  It is not possible to enter it in the inside only by the appearance tour.
