SJK is just a suburb of Colombo, 9 km / 5 miles from downtown. Many publications, like Britannica, Lonely Planet and Free Dictionary name Colombo as the capital. In any case, even if your opinion is that SJK as the legislative capital due to the new parliament building opening there in 1982, Colombo remains the executive and judicial capital. Here either answer earns you the point.
