Brief Garden Tour

Stroll along the beautiful Brief Garden, crafted by Bevis Bawa, brother of the famed architect Geoffery Bawa. A haven shrouded with lush foliage provided perfect spaces for relaxation and admiration. Weave through the overgrown pathways until you reach the manicured gardens, paving the way to the majestic sight of the Bevis House; a fine architectural structure.

With more than 106 different varieties of tree species, bring your friends and family along to witness the many little animals that take refuge within the garden. From birds to lizards and insects, there is a lot that you can see during your Brief Garden Tour with Taru Villas. Couple that with a tour around Bevis Bawa’s home, and you can truly understand the landscapist’s passion to create such a masterpiece.
