    Sri Lanka Experiences

    Ayubowan! Taprobane comes alive as a new day dawns: the ancient cities of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura shake off the dewdrops and rise in majestic splendour: vast white painted Dagoba sparkle in the dancing sunbeams…..wherever you look, the enigmatic smile of the Lord Buddha welcomes one and all. High in the Hill Country, bathed in hues of emerald green, tea pickers pluck the delicate buds of tea. At Sigiriya the delectable frescoes of lovely Maidens transcend heaven and earth; in Kandy the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic stands resolute. Herds of elephant, buffalo and shy leopard roam the Wildlife Parks, whilst offshore whales and dolphins grace the shimmering seas.

  •   quote-mark  We were very pleased with the organisation of our visit to Kamptee. With such short notice, you did a great job getting the contacts with the gentleman, Father Sebasti who in turn made contact with Noel Joseph and in turn George Taj. We were thrilled that our guide Irfan and driver Mr Singh, rearranged our afternoon so that we could wait till Noel could return to Kampti in the afternoon. We enjoyed a fill-in drive and visit to Ramtek temple. Guide Irfan and driver Roshan were most accommodating, as our day didn't finish til 5.50pm back in Nagpur. Noel took us back to the cemetery. He had arranged for us to go to the Nagpur Diocese office the next day, where he had arranged with George to view the archived books and registers kept there from the Garrison Church in Kampti. Several officials helped us in Nagpur. We were thrilled to find our family Baptism registrations and some extra information, which proved our ancestor had been in the Army at Kampti a gunner in the D Troop, Horse Artillery, Kampti. quote-mark2
