  • 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
