If you’re a regular traveler in the Maradana area or like my friend Lahiru if you’re sick of seeing the Maradana area on your way to and from work, you would have probably seen a collection of brick buildings lined up just opposite the Elphinstone Theatre. Flanked on either side by a multitude of trees, not much is known or seen about this place till one enters it. Even then, you will be faced with a rather stern security guard with a board stating that entrance is only of designated vehicles. This building or rather this collection of buildings is now commonly referred to as Trace Expert City. Sound familiar? If you’re in the tech industry in Sri Lanka, then it’s a no-brainer. But very few actually know the story behind Trace Expert City.
