Sri Lanka, Spice Gardens

Since ancient times, Sri Lanka has been world famous for its spices, especially during the existence of the silk route, when spices played a much larger role in food pre-serving.

When the Dutch captured Ceylon, they tried to grow them on plantations near the coast. One such plantation was cinnamon gardens in Colombo (Cinnamon Gardens, Colombo 07).

And although the plantations in Colombo no longer exist, the name remained. Now cinnamon, cloves, pepper, vanilla, cardamom and other condiments are grown in small private farms in the districts of Kegalle, Mavanelli, Kandy and Matala, where the climate is rather humid and cool.

The bulk of the products are exported. Spices are used not only in food, but in medicine and in the production of cosmetics. Throughout the country are scattered “spice gardens” in which tourists can see how spices grow, listen to a short story about their use, well, and, of course, buy.
