Scenes at the 'Earls Court', Kundasale, Sri Lanka.

These are some of the pictures I took around the Earls Court Hotel premises. The hotel is situated on a high embankment on the left side of the Mahaweli Ganga at the Kundasala bridge. It is a very popular destination for tourists. It has three halls where wedding receptions are held. A 'plate' in a buffet style lunch for the wedding guests costs around Rs.4000/ each.
