Colombo is the former capital and largest city of Sri Lanka. As the city possesses a natural harbour, it was known to Romans, Arabs, and Chinese traders over 2,000 years ago. Although the British captured Colombo in 1796, it remained a British military outpost until the Kandyan Kingdom was ceded to them in 1815 and they made Colombo the capital of their newly created crown colony of Ceylon. Today more than 640,000 people live in the urban area and more than 5.5 million people live in the urban area of Colombo. This photo of the Colombo skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 19th of December 2010.
