Brief garden by bevis bawa beruwala:
The designer of the park is Mr. Bevis Bawa, who is not an architect by profession and was a major in the sri lanka infantry. It is said that he did not receive a salary for his military service because he had a lot of money.
Educated at the Royal College, Colombo, he was a handsome young man 6 feet 4 inches tall. Because of his height, there were even various stories woven around him. His brother was Jeffrey Bawa, the architect of many of Sri Lanka's finest architects. One day he met a beautiful young woman and he fell in love with her and suddenly she left him. It is said that he even resigned from the army due to anxiety.
He then decided to pay for his solitary life with art and built not only a house on his family's Kalawila village land in Beruwala but also a beautiful garden.
He has made solitude art and built various works of art in the park. All the paintings and sculptures in this house and garden were made by this heartbroken man. The only female figure seen in the park is her mother. This handsome man, who had spent his entire life in solitude, finally passed away on September 8, 1992, distributing this flower garden and all his property among his servants.
Brief garden ticket prices:
The park was opened to the public in 1970 and currently costs Rs. 500 to visit the park and Rs. 2,000 will also be charged.
So far, the garden is home to more than a hundred species of plants, including flowers, flowers, and a variety of birds and butterflies. The few hours spent in the park were very pleasant, with the sounds of various birds enjoying the breeze.
It is a must visit place for anyone who loves architecture as well as tranquil surroundings. It was during his lifetime that he decided to bury his ashes under a huge Esala tree in his own garden, perhaps because he had lived in harmony with the environment and wanted to spend the rest of his life doing so.
