A jewel in the hill country
A large town in the Badulla District, Bandarawela is often on the itinerary of excursions to the hill country. There are many quaint little bungalows and rest houses to stop over for a meal while enjoying the garden settings they are usually established in. There are many ancient temples to explore in and around the region in particular the Dowa temple that is believed to be over 2,000 years old,with complete stone sculptures and vibrant murals. For some colonial history you can visit St Anthony’s church and its beautiful gardens or journey further to Haputale to visit the Adisham bungalow, a beautiful colonial style country house.
