This one of the best destination one would like to visit in Kandy or Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. It is sprawling and very well maintained. Has a variety of plants (both ornamental and spice). You can spend hours and hours in this garden.
Wonderful garden. So many species of plants cam be found here. Very good place to have a relax walk. In one corner, there is a mahaveli river. Ticket price for local is Rs:100. One end there is a huge bat colony.

You need to go even if you are not into botanical gardens. It costs 1500r and it's totally worth it. We spent 3 hours wandering around among hundreds interesting beautiful and unusual types of plants and flowers. The orchid house is spectacular.
We loved all the gardens and enjoyed the guide that came with the cart. The rain stopped long enough for us to enjoy this spectacular place. If you need a driver we can recommend our, Salinlankatours@gmail.com.
