Very old cemetery of Colombo. But I think admission is restricted. Famous figures of Sri Lanka rest here.
Much of the old beauty of Kanatte remains, but on my third visit this year I noticed that maintenance was poor in both the CMC administrated section as well as the Anglican section.

Situated in the heart of Borella right in front of the Borella roundabout. This could be accessed from few sides and is very considerably large in size. Allowed for all religions and is well maintained. Always makes me think how peaceful this place is.

Rather puts one in perspective about the futility of our earthly life...
