The Borella Kanatte Cemetry is the main burial ground for people from all faiths in the city of Colombo. The cemetery is the final resting place of several Sri Lankan luminaries. It has a separate section for the people who died during the two world wars. As of today, there are over 60 graves for people who died during World War I and around 300 graves for people who lost their lives during World War II.

Although, visiting a cemetery seems morbid, the Borella Kanatte Cemetry is a very green place. The 50 acre stretch of the cemetery is ripe with manicured gardens and mature trees. It’s a really peaceful place where you can sit and contemplate.
