Campus site


Location

 

The IDC will be established on thirteen acres of land at Hindagala, Peradeniya.  It adjourns the Raja maha Vihara, is in proximity to the University of Peradeniya and lies about half a km away off the Kandy-Galaha main road. It is at a distance of 8 km from Kandy and 31/2km from the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens.

 

Topography and Climate

 

It is a sloping land covered with a number of bo trees and scattered vegetation and strewn small and large rocks. One main stream flows down quietly along the southern border creating a few waterfalls among the rocks. A cool and healthy climate prevails in the area.

 

Scenic Beauty of the Site

 

 To the west, the site commands a fascinating and panoramic view of the surrounding hills and the valley of the river Mahaweli, which can drive many a viewer to raptures. It is no exaggeration to say that this idyllic setting of nature’ resplendence provides an ideal environment for ennoblement of mind  and intellectual ferment.
