Tour in brief

  • Uthuwankanda is a beautiful village with green paddy fields, rivers and mountains. The Uthuwankanda Village tour starts with the Uthuwankanda Temple where you meet the honorable monk in the temple. He will give a small description about the historical importance of the temple, after which you will be able to taste a freshly prepared Sri Lankan breakfast. 
  • There are four important places to visit in this journey. They are Saradiel rock, Saradiel cave, Saradiel theme park and Bo fall. The Saradiel rock climb is one of the main adventure activities in this tour. While exploring the cave tunnel, you will need to creep through certain areas, making it quite an adventure.

About the Saradiel Village

‘Saradiel’ who is also known as the Sri Lankan Robin Hood, was born in 1832 during the British rule in Ceylon. He generously distributed money that he stole from the rich,  among the poor and needy. Saradiel had a gang of robbers/companions, just like the western legend, Robin Hood.

Today the legend of ‘Saradiel’ has been recreated at the ‘Saradiel Village’ located at the foothills of Uthuwankanda, the rocky mountain which had been his hiding place. A visitor to Saradiel Park can enjoy a guided tour which will take one through the life from childhood to his execution with life-size sculptures bringing to life the important personalities of the time.
