Activities

Little bit about Adisham Bungalow

This splendid bungalow was constructed by the British governor in 1931 and it is situated about 2km from Haputale town. The Adhisham monastery of Saint benedict is a mansion earlier headed by Sir Thomas Villiers, a British planter in Ceylon. Every stone of the peaceful building spells the life story and pleasant memories of Sir Villiers. He was a great painter and his paintings still decorate the marvelous place. The bungalow has been converted as a church and several worshippers visit this place daily. The bungalow is surrounded by several tea estates, a forest, a railway and other temples. Covered by tranquility of the misty hills, it gives you the best peace of mind and pleasure.

There’s an outlet where you can buy natural fruit products made out of fruits from the orchards. The Monks in the monastery together with some villagers cultivate strawberries, guavas, oranges and vegetables.

If you wish to stay at Adhisham, there is a guesthouse with 9 rooms. Pre-bookings can be done through the mentioned contact details.
