  • This is a private property. Too much expensive tickets.pls tourist board or some what authority have to consider about this. Tickets Rs.300 per person only for visit their garden Rs.1000 per person to visit their bungalow. Even for srilankans , village people said us that first owner did a superb job,but now its only just business
  • We promise you that the journey to our garden is one of the views that will dominate your mind for a lifetime. Located only 20 minutes away from the Aluthgama town, the journey through paddy fields and the breeze that sweeps across the wilderness will certainly make you feel like a wayfarer. We are located in the narrow pathways of Dharga Town.
  • One of the most striking pieces is a gigantic mural which takes up an entire wall, an epic overview of the island of Lanka, with a myriad of details to behold, Hindu goddesses, towns & villages, elephants, lakes, trees, jungles, forests, peacocks, monks a kaleidoscopic slice of life
  • This place reflects the life style spent by Bevis Bava and his works bit. Garden is well organized and placed plants and other items in a way that mind let to spend in peacefully. Arts and crafts show full human body most of the time.
  • Truly amazing place commonly mistaken by work of Geoffrey Bawa instead done by his brother Bavis Bawa. Moving architecture and Gardening from the entrance itself. Out of box simple design language comprising both calming and emotional feelings. Some features are very bold yet some are amazingly subtle. Even western design features are embedded with Sri Lankan signature. The curators are helpful and willing to make you aware. Great place to spend a day with your family.
