The Royal Botanic Gardens in Kandy, Sri Lanka   The second city in Sri Lanka is dusty, dirty, noisy & difficult to navigate so a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kandy was a most welcome relief. Not so much a botanic garden in the sense that we would recognise here in the British Isles, […]

The house & garden are now under the guardianship of the […]
