1. Ceylon Tea Factory

Sri Lanka was formerly known as Ceylon. The humidity, cool temperatures, and rainfall of the central highlands provide a climate that favours the production of high-quality tea. Tea production became one of the main contributors to the economy of Sri Lanka. What many do not know is that Sri Lanka is one of the few countries where each tea leaf is picked by hand rather than by mechanization of modern technology. In general, these tea plants require constant nurturing and attention and the two leaves and a bud, which have the flavour and aroma, are skilfully plucked by mostly women.

2. Spice & Herbal Garden

Sri Lanka is famous for its spices and spices gardens. In order to promote and uplift spice growing and spice gardens of Sri Lanka a spice council was established with all key industry private and public sector stakeholders. During ancient times, Sri Lanka was also known as Taprobane, and was world-renowned for its valuable spices. The Greeks, Romans and the Arabs maintained their links with Sri Lanka through the spice trade. There are some 4,000 different species of plants. The wealth and variety of Sri Lankan spices provided ideal grounds for traditional Ayurveda. Ayurveda is an ancient form of medicine, using natural remedies to achieve physical and mental well-being.

He authorised the damming of the Thalagala stream, which originates from Mount Pidurutalagala in order to make more land available for the expansion of the Nuwara Eliya town. In 1913 the waters of the lake were directed into a tunnel which flows to a hydro power station at 'Blackpool' between the town and Nanu Oya. The power station continues to supply electricity to the town to this day. This lake was also used for water sports and recreational activities.
