Colombo, the commercial and banking capital, lies on the west coast and was established by British colonists. Jayewardenepura is the political capital and lies a few kilometers west of Colombo. The ruins of ancient royal capitals and an advanced ancient civilization can be seen elsewhere, especially to the north. The legacy of a colonized past is also evident, e.g. from the Portuguese, Dutch and British periods.

Climate and Weather
Due to its proximity to the equator Sri Lanka has a tropical climate which varies from the coastal plains to the central highlands though there are no marked seasons. There are two major monsoon periods and two inter-monsoon periods during which there are regular, heavy daily downpours. At other times, the weather is generally hot and humid in the south west and hot and dry elsewhere.
