The Royal Botanical Gardens situated in Peradeniya, Kandy is one of the largest botanical gardens in Sri Lanka. The garden is spacious and elegant consisting of 147 acres holding a wide array of different species of plants and trees including a collection of Giant Bamboo of Burma which is capable of growing more than 130feet in height. The sensational century old Javan fig tree spreads its roots across an enormous area and the garden show cases all of Sri Lanka’s fauna and species from the tropical world.

If you like flowers, plants, giant trees and landscaped gardens then this place should be top of your places to visit in Kandy. The botanical garden is managed by the division of national botanical gardens of the department of Agriculture. Luminaries such as Queen Elizabeth, Marshal Tito and Yuri Garagarin have planted trees to mark their visit to the garden too.

The Royal Botanical Gardens is situated to the west of the city Kandy in the Central Province and attracts 2 million Visitors a year. It is near the longest river of Sri Lanka, the Mahaveli. In the middle of the gardens is an artificial lake including giant water lily and papyrus reeds and a white-domed rotunda to commemorate George Gardner, who was the superintendent of the park beside the lake.

To visit the Botanical Gardens situated in Peradeniya, one must obtain entrance tickets. If one gets into the 644 Bus from the Kandy clock tower bus stop, it directly travels to the gardens. A tourist could also travel by a three-wheeler from Kandy as many taxis incorporate a visit to the Botanical gardens. Travel charges can be negotiated with the three-wheeler driver or if there are a large number of people, an air-conditioned taxi van can be hired.
