The Brief Garden is the name given to an estate, which is, undoubtedly, the most famous garden in Bentota.
Situated at a relatively short distance from the charming town of Bentota, you will find a hardly maintained riot of a garden straight out of the Jungle Book; the Brief Garden. If you are visiting this part of the country, reserve your stay prior in one of the premier Sri Lanka beach hotels the likes of Cinnamon Bey Beruwala to get the best out of your holiday.
The Brief Garden
The Brief Garden is a marvel of landscaping, and its timeless beauty has inspired its visitors ever since it was opened to the public. Thus, if you are a lover of landscaping architecture, the Brief Garden is an attraction that you simply must not miss out on.
The Brief Garden was designed by Bevis Bawa, the brother of legendary architect and landscapist Geoffrey Bawa. You will find that the garden is an almost magical creation featuring spectacular views and an array of sculptures, some of which were created by Bevis Bawa himself and others by different artists.
A must visit!
Bevis Bawa’s vision for the Brief Gardens leads to an aesthetically pleasing marriage between architectural form and the rich natural heritage that Sri Lanka, as a flourishing tropical island south of the equator, has inherited.
