Sri Lanka does not have a lot of antique stores. This was the best one we found and bought one small statue here. There are also a couple other antique stores on the same block.

Great collection of rare historical objects, and very friendly welcome! We saw exceptional statues of Bouddha, religious things like bowl for offering. Not enough place to take all we want in the plane!
