18th Century Post Office

The Tudor-style two-storey red-brick building with a clock spire, was constructed in 1894 by the British.

In 2012 the former living quarters of the post master, on the upper floor of the post office, was converted into tourist accommodation.

On the 26 December 1990 Sri Lanka Post issued a Rs. 10 stamp with a photograph of the Post Office, to commemorate World Postal Day.
