Nawara Eliya is a city in the hill country of Sri Lanka founded by Sir Samuel Baker in 1846. The meaning of the Singhalese words "Nuwara Eliya" is "City on the Plane" or "City of Light". It was named "Little England" during the British Period and was used as a hill country retreat where pastimes such as hunting, horse riding, polo, golf and cricket were popular among visitors. All of the buildings retain features from the colonial period and are furnished in the colonial style and maintain old English-style lawns and gardens. Being located at an altitude of 6,128 feet gives Nuwara Eliya a pleasant subtropical highland climate with a mean annual temperature of 16 °C (61 °F). Nuwara Eliya is overlooked by Pidurutalagala, the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka and is surrounded by fruit and vegetable plantations along with the odd water fall or stream. Being the most important location for Tea Plantation in Sri Lanka further enriches the picturesque mountain landscapes on offer. Boasting of attractions such as the Gregory’s Lake, The Golf Club, Race Course, Victoria Park, Galway Forest and the Horton Plains National Park, World's End and Haggala Botanical Gardens, Nuwara Eliya is a true hill country resort.
