    I think it is Rajapaksha family who are richest in Sri Lanka and Mr. Mervin Silva with his recent purchase of Jaguar car come second.
    But it is hard to tell who has earned most in Sri Lanka. because no proper income tracing and no one wants to pay taxes. So my judgement was according to the capacity to spend.

    I think business tycoon Harry Jayawardane is the richest person in Sri Lanka. he owns lot of businesses and one of main income resource for him his Sri Lanka distilleries.
    Dammika Perera who was a BOI head is a close contestant. he owns few famous casinos as well.
    While these people’s money involve alcohol and gambling, people like Dr. Nihal Jinasena (Jinasena company), Nawaloka Darmadasa family, Hemaka Amarasuriya, Ranjith Fernando, Soma Edirisinghe are few other prominent figures.
    Oh forgot to mention about Sumathipala family (Thilanga Sumathipala). They also belong to first group as their one of main income is race by race.
