|Sri Lanka is an island country located just at the southern tip of India. This neighbour of India is a nation rich of culture, tradition and costumes. One common phrase about Sri Lanka is said that it is a country located on the cross roads where east meets west. Sri Lanka is also called as the gateway to southern Asia. The island is an important seasonal home to migrating birds, including flamingoes, which flock to the lagoons, wetlands and bird sanctuaries for respite from the northern winter.
