  • First of all, it is far when we have to go to the center of Colombo. Otherwise, the fish are beautiful and varied, but however the environment is rather deplorable. It is dirty, not maintained. It's a shame because there are potential! My son loved discovering all these fish!

  • This place is a very good place to spend a day with new experience. There are lots of varieties of fish are available for show. Place is maintained with good care.
  • I went with my family and friends to this aquarium and bird sanctuary near Kelaniya temple which was one the places visited by Lord Buddha on his visit to Sri Lanka. There was quite a variety of fish from jelly fish to many others. There was no guide available and website says educational tours are available. Some information was provided in multiple languages nearby. Water tunnel was too short, 30 feet long, but you can repeatedly go through it. Limited types of fish were there in the tunnel. Bird Park is also worth to visit, next to the water world. However, through half inch wire mesh it was really hard to see the beauty of birds. I couldn’t capture at least one bird in the park. One reason would be that to stop feeding by visitors. Limited parking facilities and I didn’t see enough security provided by the management. Cafeteria running understaff with limited choices. If you are going with kids better well prepared.
  • There is a nice tunnel in length close to 20 meters to watch shark. This is the only place i visited in Sri Lanka with such tunnel. Rest of the Aquarium garden is also good.
  • Cool place to visit for kids, families and fish pet lovers. Well maintained tanks and a water tube also available. Nothing much to see in the bird Park though.
  • The lovely place. If you are near the kalani never miss to visit this place. A lot of collection of water species and also some beautiful birds also. the ticket is very cheep
