My experience in Lotus Tower Sri Lanka was unique. It was my first time in a tower, and I felt like I was in a fairy tale. The view from the top of the building is breathtaking, especially at night when you can see the city lights.

What is this, Lotus Tower?

Lotus Tower is a skyscraper located in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It is the tallest building in Sri Lanka. Lotus Tower was built on a site previously occupied by the original Lotus Hotel, which burned down in 2009.


As earlier said, Lotus Tower is the tallest building in Sri Lanka and the second tallest building in Southeast Asia. It was built to commemorate the 50th year of independence from British rule. The tower stands 210 meters (689 feet) tall, with a roof that reaches 155 meters (509 feet) above ground level. The spire reaches 65 meters (213 feet).


Lotus Tower is located in the heart of Colombo, Sri Lanka. It is located on the corner of Janadhipathi Mawatha and Galle Road. Lotus Tower Hotel can be easily accessed from any part of Colombo as it has ample parking space for its guests. There is a convenient location just a few minutes from the Galle Face Green, where you can enjoy watching exciting cricket matches or enjoying fun activities with friends.

Lotus Tower Hotel is also close to National Museum, which has many interesting exhibits about Sri Lankan history; Independence Square, where you can find many restaurants serving delicious food; Boralugemuwa Temple, Kandy Lake Park, and Kuruvila Maha Vihara temple, among other tourist attractions, within 10 minutes’ drive from this hotel.

Accessing the Lotus Tower is easy. First, you can take a train or bus to the city center and then walk to the Lotus Tower.

The Lotus Tower has a parking lot, so you don’t have to worry about finding street parking in Sri Lanka.

The doors are locked at night and during bad weather conditions, but opening hours vary depending on what day of the week it is: Monday through Thursday: 9 am-4 pm; Friday-Saturday 10 am-4 pm; Sunday 11 am-3 pm.


The construction cost is estimated to be around Rs 350 million, including the cost of land and other material used. The equipment used in this project is all new, so there has been no significant cost incurred on this side either.

Labor costs are another essential factor to consider while deciding whether or not to build a tower in your country or region. In Sri Lanka, where Lotus Tower is situated, we can hire professional workers at very reasonable rates (compared with other countries).

Lotus Tower

The Lotus Tower is designed to reduce wind drag and solar gain. The curved shape of the tower reduces wind drag by lowering the lift-off angle, which means that it takes less force to lift into the sky. This can be considered an engineering problem in which you have two forces acting on a system: one pushing down on one side and another pulling upward (which causes lift). If you could make this process, go faster, then both forces would work together to move your body upward quicker. If you could make it go slower, both squads would work together less than before, which could help reduce air resistance for people who want access inside!

The area around where these two forces meet needs some special attention; this is where things get interesting.

Construction height

The Lotus Tower is a 154m tall building in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was built as a memorial to the former Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and the country’s first President, Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike, who died in 1980. The tower houses an observation deck that offers 360-degree views of Colombo city, surrounding areas, and the ocean beyond.

The Lotus Tower was opened on June 7th, 2005, by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The structure is a reinforced concrete tower with a circular plan. It has four columns that support the steel superstructure and concrete core, which Trammell Crow designed.

Land use

Lotus Tower is a mixed-use building for commercial and residential purposes. It has a hotel, offices, and apartments. It also has a high-rise structure, making it more desirable than other Sri Lankan buildings.

The Lotus Tower is a symbolic addition to the landscape of Sri Lanka. It is an architectural icon representing the country’s ability to attract foreign investments and build successful infrastructure projects. The building’s height, location, and accessibility make it a landmark for all who visit the nation.

And finally I could say, in my experience, I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience something new.
