Sense of Heritage

Sense of Heritage

The “Sense of Heritage” is all about an iconic train, a legendary railway line and a World Heritage City. Sri Lanka Railway or Ceylon Railway made its first journey to Kandy in 1867, making a way for the planters to transport their coffee production to Colombo, 25 years after it was originally discussed in 1842. Today, you can travel along the same rail line to Kandy, the way your great grand parents did.
