Want to feast your eyes with lush greenery? Spare some time to visit the beautiful Brief Garden in Bentota. Get close to nature and admire the wonderfully designed landscapes.
The Brief Garden has been home to Bevis Bawa who was the brother of the famed architect Mr. Geoffrey Bawa. The garden features beautiful landscapes and it is located 10km off Bentota. As implied by its name, the gardens are ‘brief’ and they are designed like rooms in a house. Each has its own individual features and touches.
One has to enter the Brief Garden by driving past paddy fields along narrow lanes. Once you step inside the garden, everything is serene and quiet except for the scampering of squirrels. The balmy atmosphere of the garden will certainly immerse you in tranquil seclusion.
The house features a blend of antiques and modernist classics. Many photographs are hung on walls and each depicts the story of Bevis’s life. His passion for history is well portrayed from the picture of King Edward VIII looking piercingly at the camera.
