SRI LANKA ~St Benedict's Monastery - Adisham~

...Strange to see this European architecture in tropical island Sri Lanka...Thanks a lot Ravindra for showing me once more something new and surprising!!
Adisham Bungalow is a country house near Haputale, in the Badulla District.The house was built in 1931 by an English aristocrat and planter Sir Thomas Villiers, former Chairman of George Steuart Co, a trading and estate agency based in Colombo.

In 1961 it was purchased by the Roman Catholic Church and was subsequently converted to a monastery; the Adisham monastery of Saint Benedict. It has a relic (a chip of a bone) of St. Sylvester at the chapel.

The house is well preserved along with its period fittings and furniture, and is open to visitors.
