  • This is said to be the place where the Last King of Sinhale, King Sri Wickramarajashinge was kept until he is deported as a royal prisoner by the British to Vellore Fort in southern India. Some says he was not in this cell and he was kept in a house nearby, which is no longer exists. According to the plaque on this cell it says he was surrended on 18th February 1815 and deported on 24th January 1816. He died on 30th January 1832. #letsrecordmonuments
  • According to the Archeological Department, this place believed to be the detention room of the last Kandyan King Sri Wicrama Rajasinghe who was captured by conquering British in 1815. After a shorter period of detention, the King was deported to Maddras, India. Although this has significant value to the Srilankan history, this place is hidden among the giant sky scrapers of the bustling Colombo city in the car park of Ceylinco building.
