Baseline road, and the road to the Parliament, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Railway station, Demetagoda. This was earlier the narrow gauge Kelani Valley line. Now it is standard gauge. You can see the remnants of the old narrow gauge railway line still remaining.

Surveyors drawing a map of Colombo during British Colonial times drew the Baseline, along what is now called 'Baseline road'. The name persists even though the city of Colombo has long passed this boundary.
