“Just another building”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

It is just another building. You can stop by on your way to Galle Face and click some and move on. Nothing really special. But the building is indeed beautiful. Just that it is not a major attraction and not worth spending lot of time admiring on it.

“Great looking building”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Spectacular looking building, not allowed to take pictures as the president lived close by. The presidents helicopter would frequently land close by and streets would be closed of when ever he came.

“Nice looking building”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Just had a look rom outside, and clicked some photos of the building. Nothing much to say, as we didn't have a guide to explain anything about it.
