Entertainment
“This superb hybrid of Indian and British architecture was copied from the plans of an Indian Maharaja’s palace designed by a London architect. Richmond Castle in Kalutara is a two-storied building with 15 rooms. All the rooms are naturally air-conditioned it has 99 door frames, 38 windows and one roof covering the entire mansion. The whole building is characterized by elaborate carvings. Italian and Scottish glass windows and mirrors, and shiploads of timber from Burma, were imported to build this superb construction and is complete with a stable, workers’ quarters, guard rooms, dancing floor and all requirements for a luxury life.”
