Mount Lavinia Hotel

As a part of the study tours last year we were taken to Mount Lavinia Hotel. This is one of the oldest hotels in Sri Lanka having a long rich history of 200+ years. This Grand hotel was built by the second British Governor, Sir Thomas Maitland in 1805. The town Mount Lavinia is named after this hotel.  As we visited the hotel, the management allowed us to go around & take some pictures & also gave us a brief history of the hotel. Shown below are some sketches as well as images that I captured.

The visit to the hotel & story behind it was a great inspiration to me because last semester I used this hotel for a history group assignment. Some sketches from my sketchbook from last year….
