Due to its large harbor and its strategic position along the East–West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago.It was made the capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815 and its status as capital was retained when the nation became independent in 1948. In 1978, when administrative functions were moved to Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, Colombo was designated as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka.
