On its summit are the foundations of what was once a great and sumptuous palace and gardens complete with swimming pool.  On one of the stairways the only known ancient work of Sinhala secular painting survived in the form of frescoes of life sized damsels in all the freshness and delicacy of their original color. These Frescos painted in earth pigments on plaster.Thereafter Experience the thrill of an elephant back safari in Habarana. Once you mount the Elephant, you will be taken deep in to the jungle, accompanied by a Mahout. During the journey, you will be able to spot occasionally a herd of wild elephants. A truly adventurous journey!!
