"Sri Lanka,The Pearl Of Indian Ocean."

Sri Lanka is a small island situated in the Indian Ocean, at the base of the Indian Sub-Continent. It is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious country with a diverse and rich culture with a total population of 20 million(2010). Rich in flora and fauna.

Sri Lanka is blessed by 103 rivers, all ending up at the Indian Ocean. Seductive beaches and tempting water sports, magnificent landscapes featuring lazy lagoons, fertile wetlands, ecologically-wondrous types of forest, imposing mountains, bounteous rivers and waterfalls, an abundance of wildlife, inspiring heritage sites from ancient cities to colonial forts, a vibrant culture including fine arts and crafts and grand festivals, and a people of diverse ethnicity and religious persuasion, charming and hospitable.

For a quarter century, Sri Lanka seems to have been plagued by misfortune, including a brutal civil war. But the conflict finally ended last May, ushering in a more peaceful era for this teardrop-shaped island off India’s coast, rich in natural beauty and cultural splendors.

“Welcome to Sri Lanka-A Land Like No Another”
