ඇඩිශම් බංගලාව – Benedictine Monastery of Addhisham

SCENARIES , , , , , ,

A few kilometres from Haputale in Colombo – Kandy road is Benedictine monastery of Addhisham. The garden is home to blue magpies, paradise flycatchers, green barbets, brilliant orange plumaged mini-verts hornbills, golden orioles & a host of other bird life. The house that resembles Leeds Castle in Kent, England, was in fact built by a Kentish gentleman, who filled it with imported carpets, porcelain, furniture & glassware. He even had an English chauffeur for his Daimler. Today it is run as a monastery, which runs a domestic industry of food products such as jams & jellies from wild guavas & fruit cordials. The monastery borders the Tangamalai bird sanctuary.
