The SpaceOur 4 bed villa is situated between the historical Mihintale Rock Temple and the Kanadarawa water tank. It’s just over a mile from Mihintale’s ancient temple and only 15 minutes driving distance from the Sacred City of Anuradhapura, but in total tranquility, far away from the crowds and traffic noises. Set in a 0.75 acres garden, the villa is a mix of traditional charm and modern comforts. The villa was designed by my brother Rohan Gajanayaka, a special feature is a naturally ventilated veranda, allowing all rooms to benefit from fresh air breezes and from sunrise untill sun goes down no need to switched on any light at any rooms. Because all the rooms,living room and veranda get natural light from sun. So day time i do not pay any cent for electric power. So i should thanks lot to my brother.

Interaction with GuestsMy family-run guesthouse and personal driving and guiding service will guarantee a private atmosphere and Sri Lankan hospitality, travelling according to your own wishes and preferences, without risks of tourist traps. My expertise will help you to visit all well-known places of interest and can show you many sites untouched by mass tourism, too The NeighborhoodYou can learn how to dress with a Saree or with Sarongs. My sister can help you to do that. We can also visit a local tailor to make suits or Sri Lankan national dresses. You can wear local style clothing when joining ceremonies or celebrations. For example, I can arrange to join very traditional wedding ceremonies of local families.You can meet our Ayurvedic Doctor at any time, for any kind of information. You can visit his local hospital or he can come to the guest house, too, where you can receive the Ayurvedic treatments you require. But you should know, he is a genuine Sri Lankan doctor visited by our locals, so you can not expect international luxury standards at his place. But the treatment is very professional and he is a kind person. Some persons interested in our culture like to meet monks or to take part in meditation. For authentic meditation classes I can contact a monk from our village temple. You can participate in other Buddhist rituals or programmes, too, you can even study Buddhist teachings with the support of well-educated monastic scholars. My guest house is located in between the Mihintale rock temple and a very large historical reservoir. So from my guest house you can enjoy a walk through the village to that huge tank, for hiking along the lake or birdwatching, which is also interesting due to the typical dry zone avifauna in our area. There are scenic sunset points at the lake, too. You can also make a bike trip to our historical water tank. With the help of local fishermen, you can catch fish there according to our traditional methods and we can arrange a BBQ party. At the lake you can swim or relax and return easily to the guest house at the end of the day. When biking to smaller villages in the surrounding, you can see the real life of local people. Sometimes locals will invite you for meals and drinks, you decide whether to say yes or no. But they are innocent people and not bad at all. They just want to make friends.... I hope my proposals and events will enable you to experience the less touristy sides of Sri Lanka and make a difference compared to standard arrangements of international (URL HIDDEN) dear readers, do you like more activities? I really like to come to know, what are your own ideas and expectations. Your proposals will be an inspiration for me. So please feel free to contact me.Sunrise and Sunset in Mihintale
After Adams Peak, Mihintale is the 2nd best place to see the sunrise.
And after Sigiriya Rock Mihintale Eth Wehera Dagoba is the 2nd best place to see the sunset.
Guests really interested in enjoying sunrise and sunset can reach the top within 20 minutes from my guest house. Especially for sunset, I recommend Mihintale, because the sun goes down just behind a big lake and behind two Dagobas belonging to the ancient capital Anuradhapura. This sunset is unique to Mihintale and we cannot see in any other part of the world. Getting AroundIt is possible to get to Anuradhapura on the A9 highway from Kandy. The drive from Colombo is approximately five hours by bus; or 4 hours by private vehicle. Buses travel along this highway, as well, and there is a bus station in the Anuradhapura New Town. Train service also runs to Anuradhapura from the south, with two stations being in and near Anuradhapura.
The A9 road will lead you in and out from the city, and you can find buses from Kandy,to Mihintale.And from Colombo to mihintale, and other destinations from the bus station in the Anuradhapura New Town. There are also two train stations in and around Anuradhapura, which can take you to Colombo and Kandy. On your request i can arrange any type of car or tuk-tuk with a Guarantee person. Or i come personaly. this is easy i can arrange for my guests. Other Things to NoteThis is a family run guest house. At my place you can really connect to people and experience the local life. While staying with us you can learn to cook Sri Lankan food and cook alone after an introduction or after taking part in a cooking class. So you learn it on the first day and on the 2nd day you can do it for others. My mother will be available to help you, though unfortunately she does not speak English (nor other foreign languages), but as her son, I can assure she will find a way to communicate with you. Occasionally my sister can translate or assist.
