Our world is filled with man-made things. But have you ever heard of the world that is man-made? A city far away from England was manually designed in such a manner that it resembled an English village. Welcome to Nuwara Eliya, the ‘Little England’ in Sri Lanka! Ceylon was ruled by the British until 1948. The military officers discovered a retreat in the hills that resembled their homeland. With its breath-taking beauty and favourable climate that promise relief from the prevalent weather in Colombo, the hot and humid capital city of Ceylon. Where there was earlier an eyesore of a swamp, they created an artificial lake by diverting water from a stream flowing down from Piduruthalgala Mountain. Christened Lake Gregory, it even generates electricity for the town. There are numerous places to visit in Nuwara Eliya, like the Hakgala Botanical Gardens, the Laxapana Falls, the Lover’s Leap Waterfall, the Devon Falls, the Oliphant Estate, the Ceylon Breweries, the Tea plantation and the amazing factory that wow tourists and the locals alike.
