First, to set up the Pinnawala elephant orphanage, the word "elephant orphanage" may be unfamiliar, yet it is entirely factual and real. The quiet grounds are committed to providing a natural habitat for captive elephant babies ranging in age from weeks to fifty years. The herd can be housed at the only orphanage of its sort on the planet to date. Next, visit the Peradeniya royal botanical garden. The Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya are Sri Lanka`s oldest formal gardens. Every year, roughly 2 million local and foreign visitors visit the Royal Botanic Gardens Peradeniya. The park contains about 4000 plant species, including orchids, spices, medicinal herbs, and palm trees, and is known for its orchid collection and long, palm-framed pathways. The dazzling climber plants with difficult-to-pronounce names like Beaumontia and Saritaea are entwined with the lovely lilac-blue petraea, which are claimed to have grown more beautifully than at the Kew gardens themselves. Finally, we visit the temple of the tooth relic. The Sri Dalada Maligawa (or Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic) is a Buddhist temple that houses Lord Buddha`s tooth relic. It is located within the royal palace complex of the ancient Kingdom of Kandy. Kandy was the last great capital of Sri Lanka`s ancient monarchs, and the presence of the temple is one of the main reasons why the city was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The relic housed within the temple has played an important part in Sri Lanka`s political history, as it was believed that the keeper of the relic had the authority to rule the country. The protection of the tooth relic became one of the monarch`s duties, and it became a symbol of the right to reign over time. This is why the temples built to protect the relic were so close to the monarch`s royal home. At the end of the day, we finish the tour.
