Piduratalagala, which is the highest peak of the country. Eliya lanka nuwara sri literal meaning is the City Of Light surrounded by lush tea plantations and is the heart of the tea industry. The city was developed by Britishers as an exact model of the British town, and is known for producing some of the country's best tea. The city acted as a pleasure retreat for the European planters and even now the city is an English town with many English style bungalows and buildings.
