On our way to Dambulla the driver stopped at this spice garden where all the herbal and medical plants are grown and Ayurvedic products sold at their outlet. The tour of the garden was exceptional with a guide accompanying to explain the benefits of each plant and the products derived. Apart from the usual spices, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper, we saw sandal wood trees, cocoa pods, special varieties of pineapple. At the end of the tour the guide showed us the various products applying a little of each for testing. Found a herbal hair removing cream hich really worked wonders with spot on results. A spices tea as offers to all tourists that was so full of flavour that we just could not resist he temptation to make a purchase. Overall a nice experience that should not be missed when travelling g on this route. Prices were steep so don't fall for all the sales talk. Be judicious about makiing the right purchases.
