Macan Marker Building (Colombo Fort)

Macan Marker

The Macan Marker Building is located at No. 33 on Sir Baron Jayatilaka Mawatha in Colombo Fort, Sri Lanka.

History

The building is believed to have been built at the beginning of the 20th century and was one of the properties developed by the well-known wealthy merchant family, Macan Marker (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016). They were also instrumental in several prime real estate developments in Colombo including the Galle Face Court 1 and Galle Face Court 2 which had been one of the first multistory buildings in the city (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016).
