These are just a handful of the customs which have become popular throughout the decades in Sri Lanka. Burghers as well non-Burghers are able to partake of these activities and enjoy these delicacies which are readily available. The Burghers have been taking measures to preserve the culture of their Portuguese, Dutch, British, and other European ancestors, and organisations such as the Burgher Association, the Dutch Burgher Union in Colombo, and the Catholic Burgher Union in Batticaloa are active in preserving the culture and heritage of their Burgher identity.
