The Island of Sri Lanka is extremely diverse in terms of its flora and fauna. Though the island has in general tropical climate, there are arid pockets as well. Sri Lanka’s capital is Colombo which is also the largest city. All major activities in the island happen in the capital, mainly in the economic and financial areas.Henarathgoda Botanical Garden is located around thirty kilometres north-west of Colombo, near Gampaha off Colombo-Kandy road.
The variety of trees in this botanical garden is simply incredible and some of the trees are from faraway places like Brazil. Every tropical tree has been represented; or rather trees are there from every corner of the tropical world. It is really something to see a tree from as far away place as Brazil, especially if the tree is something as unusual as the Para rubber tree.
Sri Lanka offers endless options to the tourists including Buddhists temples, Hindu temples, mosques, Christian churches, and Parliament building, parks, zoo, museums and art galleries. Henarathgoda Botanical Garden, is always on the must see list of the tourists and for very good reasons. This botanical garden is on comparatively low lying areas compared to other botanical gardens in the island.
