This is one of the best places in Colombo to go shopping for gems and jewelleries, a sort of a shopping mall, where many of the main jewellery shops in Colombo are represented. The building has been there for some time, but earlier as a fish market. After a total make-over (especially the ground floor) it has taken up a new market. The ground floor is fully reserved for gold, gems and jewelleries, a sparkling white marbled open space. Unfortunately it’s only the outside and the ground floor that have the posh look, the other floors have not undergone too many changes, although there is a nice food court on the first floor and some other shops. From the second floor you have a nice view over Pettah. Definitely worth a visit, because you can already get a nice piece of jewellery for a couple of thousand rupees, but also something for the more sophisticated taste with more money to spend. Overall the complex has some 80 stalls, of which many outlets of the top jewelers in Colombo. You can find the Gold Center very close to the Sea Street.
