Reading Room

Lunuganga has many tempos, and we hope this space which allows you to experience the garden at a slower pace. As we formulated this programme against the backdrop of Sri Lanka’s economic crisis where imported items, even books, are difficult to come by, we hope this resource makes it easier for you to delve deeper into the themes of our programme and the work of our collaborators, through a selection of books on relevant topics.

Lower gallery at Lunuganga
Open daily from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
