Inside the Belihul Oya Rest-house, Sri Lanka.

Rest Houses were strategically placed throughout Ceylon of the British Colonial times. This was to provide rest and nourishment to the Colonial authorities. These have evolved into the present day Rest-houses. The Belihuloya Rest House must be at least a hundred years old and is very famous in present Sri Lanka. It provides a charming retreat in very pleasant surroundings and is by the side of a stream where one can take a river bath. The lush greenery around abounds in bird life.
