Description: Mention the name SRI LANKA to anyone these days and there is the immediate association with the recent Tsunami; very few would link this small pearl-shaped island at the southern tip of India to the Ceylon of the old days, but even if they did, they would surely register surprise to find an English Lake District with Tudor-style homes tucked away in the higher misty regions - a testimony to the British tea planters who ensconced themselves in colonial splendor; and few would expect to find an ancient pleasure palace on top of a huge monolith with a 600 foot sheer drop on all sides, the ruins of which suggest that Sinhalese culture was at the peak of civilization when Europe was going through the Dark Ages.
