This is the most prominent cemetery in the country. Resting place to the rich, the famous and everyone in between. Many prominent officers of the armed forces rest here. Some killed in the line of duty while others expired of old age.
Lieutenant General Denzil Lakshman Kobbekaduwa RWP, RSP, VSV, USP, rcds, psc, SLAC was buried here with full military honors amidst a mourning nation. Another popular icon resting here is H.R. Jothipala, an excellent playback singer in the Sinhala cinema. The list is immense and these were just a couple from my cherished memories.
This cemetery finally saw some fresh paint and haphazard maintenance prior to the CHOGM 2013.
