From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following page lists the tallest buildings and structures in Sri Lanka in terms of pinnacle height (to the top of the highest architectural detail). Habitable buildings that are shorter than 20 storeys, and structures shorter than 75 m (246 ft), are not included in this list.

The vast majority of skyscrapers and high rise buildings in Sri-Lanka are located in the commercial capital and largest city, Colombo. The current tallest buildings are the two towers of the World Trade Centre in Colombo. In August 2014 the still under construction Hyatt Regency Colombo became the city's tallest structure.
