The second largest of 3 botanical gardens in Sri Lanka, the Hakgala Botanical Garden is just as resplendent and refreshing as you’d expect. It’s located around 16km away from Nuwara Eliya, and it’s open every day from 8.00 am to 5.30 pm. Interestingly enough, these gardens too are linked to the Ramayana, where it’s said that when Ravana held Sita captive, he gave her this garden all to herself. Today visitors are able to wander between thousands of varied plant species, which makes for a breath-taking display to say the least.
