Borella is home to Borella Kanatte Cemetery, the main burial ground for all faiths within the city of Colombo. It is located where Narahenpita Road (Elvitigala Mawatha), Bullers Road (Bauddhaloka Mawatha), and Baseline Road (D S Senanayake Mawtha) meet at a large roundabout. The cemetery was established in 1840 and is a very popular place of burial for many faiths. (Muslims do not bury their dead here as they have their own cemeteries elsewhere in the city). There is a section dedicated to the dead of the two world wars. The cemetery also has a crematorium for those who choose to be cremated instead of buried.
