We had a very informative guided tour with Joshua through the small but versatile spice garden and would definitely recommend it. If you plan on visiting the botanical garden nearby this is a great addition.

A short walk after exiting Botanical Gardens by the suspension bridge you'll find this secret jem. A great free experience for all the senses. A bit difficult to reach the bus stop back to Kandy on your way back but worth the walk.
