Royal Botanical Gardens
The Peradeniya Gardens were once the playground of ancient royalty. Converted into Botanical Gardens in 1892 by British colonists, the Gardens are considered to be one of the best in Asia, with over 10,000 plants and 4000 labeled species. The Gardens contain avenues of statuesque palms and beautiful cannonball trees, orchid houses and several rare species of trees.
