To call this a 'shop' is a vast understatement. It is more a homage to Sri Lanka's history in antique form. As others have indicated, the proprietor, perhaps due to his yogi lifestyle, beings a very relaxed and easy presence to his business. he is...More

Owner was amazing, showed us around and was very pleasant. Lots of interesting things. When we looked at different pieces we were explained if it were old and antique or if it was a newer copy.

Jam packed shop filled with old and interesting objects. However it was extremely dark, very hot, narrow walkways, steep stairs that we were more concerned about tripping, knocking something, hitting our heads to appreciate the items for sale. For us a real WH&S nightmare, however...More
