  • Many varieties of souvenirs under one roof.if you are on a short visit to Colombo and want one place for quick shopping,try this shop. Some nice wood designs , tea ,gems ,handicrafts ,Batik ,bags and what not .. And the prices are reasonable too
  • High quality selected products alone available for but the prices are higher side in commercial point of view. For instance the cost of coconut oil is 1260. But worth visiting as there is a very good collection of handmade elephants of all hues.
