Lankem Plantation House (Colombo Fort)

Lankem Plantation House
The Lankem Plantation House Building (Sinhala: කොළඹ ලංකෙම් ප්ලාන්ටේශන් ගොඩනැගිල්ල) is situated at No. 55 1/1, Sir Baron Jayatilaka Mawatha in Colombo Fort, Sri Lanka.

Estimated to have been built in 1860, this building is presently the headquarters of Lankem Tea & Rubber Plantations (Pvt) Limited, one of the largest plantation companies in Sri Lanka (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016). The building bears architectural features of the Neo-Classical style of the British Period [(1818-1948) Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016].
