The Old Post Office

Colonial buildings in Kandy

The first post office (the ‘Old’ Post office) was opened in Kandy in 1820, under the direction of the Postmaster General of Ceylon, Louis Sansoni.
The first mail coach service, between Colombo and Kandy, began operations in 1832. The carriage horses were parked at this spot and the horses were well fed and the transport of the post service began. With the coming of the railway service, the horse carriage transport came to an end.
