Kandy Garrison Cemetery, Kandy

(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Stroll through Kandy Garrison Cemetery for a unique perspective on early colonial life in Sri Lanka. The cemetery houses British nationals from the early colonial period, where tombstones reveal the various struggles of those times. Many perished from tropical diseases, but you'll also happen across more exotic causes of demise, including elephant trampling. A single caretaker painstakingly maintains the grounds, and is more than happy to offer an informative tour. Kandy Garrison Cemetery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Kandy Edition.
