What you can do
Located at the edge of Mahaveli river, Peradeniya Royal botanical garden was started as a pleasure garden in the British colonial era. Today it is renowned for bundles of varieties of plants including orchids, spices, medicinal plants and palm trees. A map is not required, just wander through the paths of green lawns. You will witness the flower arches which are waiting to welcome you! Don’t by-pass the giant Javan tree, which is a nice place to have a sit & take a snap! The suspension bridge is also a highlight in this garden & you can walk on it too. It’s not a surprise that this flourishing garden will leave sweet memories for you.
