Adam’s Peak (sri padha)

Known as “Siri pada” – the pilgrim path, a sacred mountain, famous as a goal of pilgrimage for Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims. On its summit is a large flat rock that bears the impression of a gigantic (c.10 sq ft/.93 sq m) human foot. This stone footprint is regarded as Buddha’s by Buddhists, Shiva’s by Hindus, and Adam’s by Muslims, who believe this to be the site of Adam’s fall from Paradise. The road to Adam’s peak takes you past some spectacular waterfalls & winds through the heart of some of the finest tea-growing country in the world.
