Full description
You will be introduced to the life and times of the late Geoffrey Bawa, one of Sri Lanka’s most renowned architects. Every turn and every bend in Bawa’s country home is an interesting experience. The Garden tour consists of all the highlights of the Lunuganga Park. Each building, Monument, pot or statue has a meaning, a story behind it. You will enjoy a pure cup of Ceylon tea or coffee during this visit. Arrive at the Brief garden. Developed over a period of fifteen years by Bevis Bawa, a well-known Sri Lankan artist, and the elder brother of famed architect, Geoffrey Bawa, the garden is aesthetically laid out on five acres of land and is noted for its lush vegetation. The wide variety of tropical trees, plants and sculptures that dot the garden is a true representation of all the energies that Bevis put into Brief.
