Tour Highlights

temple of the sacred tooth relic
Haggala Botanical Garden
TEMPLE OF THE SACRED TOOTH RELIC

This sacred Buddhist temple of the highest veneration in Sri Lanka, was a royal place of the Kandyan kings of the past. It houses Gautama Buddha's left canine tooth which is enshrined in a stupa decked with gems and gold jewelleries. Please note that you will not be able to see the tooth itself and the door to the stupa is usually closed. It is usually showcased only on rare special occasions.

HAGGALA BOTANICAL GARDEN

Hakgala Botanical Garden is situated at Nuwara Eliya and has a cool temperate climate because of its altitude which is 5,400 feet above the sea level. The garden was established in 1861 as an experimental cultivation of Cinchona, a commercial crop thriving at the time. Thereafter, it was turned into an experimental Tea cultivation. In 1884 it transformed to a garden. Since then many sub-tropical and some temperate plants were planted in the gardens. According to the legend, King Ravana abducted Seeta and kept her hidden in this area and offered her this place as her pleasure garden. This place was mentioned in the Ramayana as Ashok Vatika. The area was known as "Seeta Eliya" and this where the "Seeta Amman Temple" was built on the site.

Galle fort
LIGHTHOUSE

Galle Fort and lighthouse is built within the ancient Galle Fort and is another world heritage site. It is oldest light station in Sri Lanka dating back to 1848. At 6 metres (20 feet) above the road level on the embankments, it provides a clear view of all ships entering the Galle Harbour. 

Kandyan Dance
KANDYAN CULTURAL SHOW

The Kandyan Dance is iconic to Sri Lanka. "Ves" dance, the most popular form of the Kandyan dance, originated from an ancient purification ritual. The elaborate ves costume, particularly the headgear, is considered sacred and is believed to belong to the deity, Kohomba. Only toward the end of the 19th century were ves dancers first invited to perform outside the precincts of the Kankariya Temple at the annual Kandy Esala Perahera festival. 

Ceylon Tea, tea factory, Tea lady
CEYLON TEA FIELDS AND FACTORY

Sri Lanka was formerly known as Ceylon. The humidity, cool temperatures, and rainfall of the central highlands provide a climate that favours the production of high-quality tea. Tea production became one of the main contributors to the economy of Sri Lanka. What many do not know is that Sri Lanka is one of the few countries where each tea leaf is picked by hand rather than by mechanization of modern technology. In general, these tea plants require constant nurturing and attention and the two leaves and a bud, which have the flavour and aroma, are skilfully plucked by mostly women. 

Udawalawa National Park
UDAWALAWA NATIONAL PARK

Udawalawa National Park was created to provide a sanctuary for wild animals displaced by the construction of the Udawalawa Reservoir. It is also to protect the catchment of the reservoir. Udawalawa is an important habitat for water birds and Sri Lankan elephants.The area lies on the boundary of Sri Lanka's wet and dry zones. The landscape of the park is dominantly beautiful plains and some mountainous areas.

This place is believed to be the site where Seeta was held captive by King Ravana, and where she prayed daily for Rama to come and rescue her as specified in the Hindu epic, Ramayana. On the rock face across the stream are circular depressions said to be the footprints of Ravana’s elephant.
