  • There are collection of beautiful, rare, quality products... Creativity have combined with natural resources.. 
  • Really wanted to visit this store, because it was a lot of feedback that it has a lot of souvenirs. But after visiting this store we are disillusioned, like shop lot, but buy nothing. Magnets are very thin wooden plates, no, a lot of masks and metal products.

  • Superb place for people looking typical Sri lankan stuff. Especially Batiks , carvings and various kinds of ornaments. If you are a traveler and if you want to take something as souvenir when leaving ...  more »

  • Local tour guides be careful. don't encourage your guests to visit here. This people will badly let you down.you know what I mean. Excellent in postponing. Broken promises all time.
  • Govt owned and authentic but very costly and exorbitantly priced. Indian visitors would find everything costly. Unless you are a Tea lover and can differentiate different flavour of Tea, you can give a skip. Handicrafts also didn't impress me either....You may try other places as well.
  • Has all the souvenirs made in Sri Lanka. You get many brass items and also nice Buddha statues
  • Great place to buy souvenirs, handicrafts and many other local ornaments and handlooms. Little bit pricy but it's totally worth for the quality and authenticity.
  • Best vast collection of sri lankan handicrafts at reasonable price
