Kalpitiya Fort

The island’s rich soils produced many tropical indulgences that were transported in adequate quantities through preferred trade routes. Thus, Kalpitiya, being a port along the western board of Sri Lanka was an important trading point. It is believed that Kalpitiya was a trading hub for precious stones as far back as the times of King Dutugemunu.

Moratuwa

Moratuwa is a suburb in Colombo that reflects modernity combined with charming characteristics. Surrounded by the ocean, a river and a lake, Moratuwa has a very laid-back atmosphere. Views of the waters blend with traces of former colonialism and Sri Lankan flair to make visitors feel comfortable. The city can be explored at one’s own pace and is likely to transport you back to another era.

Matara

The architectural legacy of Matara can be defined as a colonial reverie amidst the exotic landscape of the tropics. Sri Lanka is a utopia for edifices that soar above all in stature as well as in simplicity. It seems impossible for the town to steer away from the architectural ideals of a colonial heritage.

Sitawaka

The Kingdom of Sitawaka was established after the division of the Kotte Kingdom by the brothers Bhuvanekabahu VII, Raigam Bandara and Mayadunne. While Kotte ruled by Bhuvanekabahu VII relented to the invading Portugese, Sitawaka under King Mayadunne fought back. Sitawaka, later annexing the Kingdom of Raigam founded by King Raigam Bandara, became the symbol of the resilient Sri Lankan spirit and safe haven for Buddhism.

Cinnamon Gardens

Cinnamon Gardens, though no longer growing cinnamon, remains a suburb of gardens. For over a century the most fashionable residential area in Colombo, it lays claim to some of the grandest, most intriguing and, very often the most ground breaking buildings. But with the roads thickly shaded with giant avenue trees planted by the British, most of the façades of Colombo 7 have changed little since the early 20th century, when the affluent moved there en masse, building mansions – many of which still stand today.
