    Stop At: Kande Viharaya Temple, 22 Marikkar St, Dharga Town 12080 Sri Lanka

    Kande Vihara is one of the biggest Buddhist temples in the Kalutara district. The temple is a formally recognized Archaeological Site of Sri Lanka. The name of this sacred place means ‘Mountain Temple’ and was derived because it was built on the crest of a hill near to Aluthgama town. However, the temple gains most of its current fame, not from its historical elements; but from the gigantic Samdhi Buddha statue unveiled in 2006. This 48 m statue is the tallest Seated Buddha statue in the world.While the temple was founded by Venerable Mong Karapagala Dewamitta in 1734. This historical Khettarama Kande Vihare has enriched its importance with the presence of the Stupa, Bo Tree, Relic Chamber, Image House, Sri Vishnu Maha Devala and the four Maha Devalas including Kataragama Devale. Outside the vihara premises, the ancient Bo Tree, Sri Saranatissa Memorial Dhamma Hall and the Poya See-ma meant for Vinaya Kamma are situated.

    Stop At: Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa, Kalawila Village, Beruwala 12070 Sri Lanka

    One of the most beautiful places in Sri Lanka in terms of construction and atmosphere, Brief Garden in the Bentota area is the brainchild of the famed Bevis Bawa. Bevis was the brother of architect Geoffrey Bawa, and as an artist in his own right, he created his own little world here. Bevis acquired it from his mother in 1929 and set about turning it into an artistic paradise. Bawa had fifteen gardeners to maintain his creation. The Brief Garden includes vegetation-covered ‘house’-like constructs with a door that wouldn’t look out of place in a fantasy film as well as the more normal ponds, flower beds and fern beds. Many of the sculptures are covered with moss and low-growing plants like ferns and vines of various species. Currently, Brief Garden is a 4.9-acre property that was once a rubber plantation.
