Contemporary Images of Sri Lanka


There is a marvellous range here though there are still some places up north and elsewhere that need to be covered. I begin by reproducing three pictures from my beloved home town of the Fort Galle and then insert one from Trinco and then a homely scene of an old fashioned house inKandy.


Introduction to Sri Lanka


The pictures here begin with Colombo, move south to Galle, north to the high country, farther north to Kandy and its environs, and farther north still to the country’s great archaeological sites.
