  • Approaching this location is slightly a tedious task as per the conditions of the roads. It is sort of a gloomy place as you reach the entrance. There are two packages from which one could choose. To watch the garden with the bungalow or Only the garden. This place is well isolated from the surrounding and is calm and quite. May require about 1 - 1 and half hours to cover the garden. Good for couples..
  • As a photographer it's one of my favorite places to shoot and to be at! The gardens are so well maintained and the old house gives me a glimpse of our beautiful islands heritage!
  • Excellent landscape experience. If you are visiting down south, this place is recommended for a stop by for a while. Drive to the place it little tough due to narrow road but it's well worth experience.
  • A calm and a quite place to visit and just walk around. Ticket price is 300rs which to my eyes is a little high.
  • Unique, hidden gem in need of some renovation. Bevis Bawa was obviously a rather odd character
