About British Garrison CemeteryThis striking European style graveyard has many stories to tell of the young souls who died during the British Colonisation of SriLanka. The most heartfelt part of this beautiful old churchyard is the 163 graves of young men, women, and children that take us back to time immemorial. Most of the tombs have inscriptions written on the lives of these good souls (few brave soldiers, many infants, and land owners).The cemetery was established in 1817 and today is being nurtured by a Caretaker, Charles Carmichael.
Highlights: Shadowed by trees and overlooking a gorgeous lake, this place is completely sound free. Charles, who also acts as a guide, tours you through the entire cemetery and narrates each life of the rested bodies quite fascinatingly.
Location: Few meters uphill from the National Museum, Kandy.
Timings: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM every day
