Little England – Nuwara Eliya – is the land of flowers, the holiday maker’s paradise guarded by a salient mountain range. Its most enthusiastic proponent was Sir Samuel Baker, who stuck his walking stick into the ground and determined to create an English Village.
Hill stations with a cool climate surround the obviously British houses built in various styles – Victorian, half-timbered, mock, tudor, and gothic. There is the Anglican Holy Trinity Church with fine stained glass standing in a churchyard, a clock tower, and a period post office. The main Roman Catholic church is dedicated to St Francis Xavier, the Apostle of the East. The Bazaar around the bus stand is modern, catering to the needs of the local people and plantation workers.
