These are the “seasons” when low-country folk flock to Nuwara Eliya to escape the sea level heat and humidity. On completion visit the Hakgala gardens.
The Hakgala Botanical Garden was one of the pleasure gardens of King Ravana of the well-known epic Ramayana.  This garden was expanded during the British period and has a wide variety of flowers including an excellent collection of orchids
This is the exotic pleasure garden where king Ravana kept the depressed Sita, insisting that she marry him.  It was here where the heart-warming meeting took place between her and Hanuman, who brought her Rama’s ring with the news that Rama was looking for her. He offered to carry her back but she refused saying it would be an insult to Rama’s honour if he did so.  Part of this majestic garden still exists.  It is also said that Hanuman nearly destroyed it in order to prove to Ravana of the forces against him.
