Introducing Badulla

Badulla marks the southeast extremity of the Hill Country and is a gateway to the east coast. It is one of Sri Lanka’s oldest towns, and has a local reputation as a base for black marketeers. The Portuguese occupied it briefly, then torched it upon leaving. For the British it was an important social centre, although the teeming roads have changed the atmosphere quite drastically today. The railway through the Hill Country from Colombo terminates here.
