“Cracking venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Of the idyllic settings I've been fortunate enough to watch cricket in, this ground is right up there. The hills provide a lovely backdrop, the grass banks an ideal place to sit and watch for a few hours and if the ground was packed with supporters, I can imagine the atmosphere would be electric. Only downside is that it is a 25 minute ride out of Kandy centre. But it's a cracking venue and a must-visit for cricket lovers.

“Great view of kandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

you will see 80 percent of kandy from this hill and must climb up th Buddha statue. You get best mountain breeze when you do that.

“scenic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The security staff was very helpful and gave us tickets for the vip enclosure. We somehow found our way to the booth after going up and down! Perfect place to mingle with locals and experience genuine hospitality. The kids loved it.

“Really good surrounding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Went there to watch a cricket match between sri lanka and south Africa. the stadium is small surrounded by mountain ranges in the distance. A small stadium means that you dont need a binoculars to see the players. The only issue is the transport to and from the ground. Its about 10Km from the Kandy town and so you need to organize transport to get there and from the stadium. although I too the Digana bus from kandy and got off the stadium and on the way back took a tuk tuk.
