The Royal Botanic Gardens in Peradeniya are located around 5.5 kilometers west of Kandy in Sri Lanka's Central Province. In 2016, 1.2 million locals and 400,000 foreign visitors visited the garden. It is located near the Mahaweli River (Sri Lanka's longest river) and is known for its orchid collection. There are around 4000 plant species in the garden, including orchids, spices, medicinal plants, and palm palms. The "National Herbarium of Sri Lanka" is attached to it. The botanical garden covers 147 acres and is located at 460 meters above sea level, with a 200-day annual rainfall. It is overseen by the Department of Agriculture's Division of National Botanic Gardens. The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kandy is just a 15-minute drive west of Kandy and a nice place to get away from the city. Wander through the expansive garden, grab a towel and rest in the grass, or stop by one of the cafes for a drink. Photography credits: Yasith Weerasundara
