When you come across treasures like these it’s a disgrace not to share. Thanks to my dear friend Asanthika for sharing them with me.
Stunning photos. I am chuffed that I was allowed to share these. More to follow soon.
“To me the beauty of Ceylon lies not so much in its blue seas and golden beaches, its jungles and its mountain peaks, as in its ancient atmosphere. There is no nation, from Egypt of the Pharaohs to modern Britian, in whose literature this island has not at some time been mentioned by one or other of its many names — Lanka, Serendib, Taprobane, Cellao, Zellan, to recall a few. History lies buried in its sands, and ghosts of romance lurk among its bastioned rocks, for Lanka is very, very old.”
– D. J. G. Hennessy, GREEN AISLES, 1949
