The name Colombo was first found by the Portuguese in 1505. Colombo is known as the commercial capital and is the largest city in Sri Lanka by population. It is the financial centre of the island and a tourist destination. Due to its large harbour and its situation along the East-West sea trader routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. Colombo features a tropical monsoon climate. Colombo is famous for its monsoon weather seasons from April to June and September to November, when heavy rains occur.
