  • Arrived at tuktuke for 200 rupees, at the entrance ticket in 200 rupees with alien con they said for us four RS 1200 and it will pay for the tickets, paid 800 directly. After the rain unbearably stuffy in the jungle. The guide told me that from the mansion in the early morning you can see the highest point of Sri Lanka-Adam's peak. Interesting architecture in the Indian and Victorian style. The doors nailed special some shutters that would House not Cobra zapolzali. Now there's school for boys from poor families, if you will go buy sweets and pass through the Guide.

  • Take a bus from Kalutara bus stand, named Kethhena or Naboda. Or take a tuk and it will take 200 to 300 rs.
  • Richmond Castle is one of the historical building located in Palathota, close Kaluthara town, Western province of Sri Lanka. This mansion is famous for its remarkable architectural features and one of the few remaining buildings belonging to that era. Richmond castle was built by 'Athur de Silva Wijeyasinghe Padikara Mudali' (1889-1947), but didn't stay in this place in last days of his life. Currently is placing used as a Children Orphanage and also used for community activities of the area.
  • Historically valuable building but very poor upkeep. Can be developed to a great tourist theme park to operate profitably.
  • A place with a historical value. Worth a visit.
  • Good for local and international tourist. Authorities make place more attractive
