A glimpse of metropolitan life
IHRA is located at the premises of University of Colombo-one and only Sri Lankan metropolitan university that all of its members can experience life of a metropolitan university. Dusimas of skyscrapers being constructed, opening of large scale, up-market shopping moles opened, recreational facilities and new landscapes, and finally busy roads even in mid-nights indicate the City of Colombo is going through a major transformation and is likely to emerge as an important mega police in South Asia during next few years.
IHRA is at the piece of land bounded on one side by Bouddhaloka Mawatha and Stanly Wijesundara Mawatha on other, thus it is easily accessible from all corners of the city and its suburbs; Borella, Nugegoda, Petta or Wellawatta. The Independence Square, Tharangani Movie Theater, several playgrounds and Arcade Independence Square shopping mole are just a walking distance, so IHRA has its own character distinguishing from similar other institutes.
