Fairway Holding’s entry into Kurunegala is in recognition of its established importance as a major city in Sri Lanka and being a vibrant, regional business hub. As a focal point in both the Central Expressway and the railway running from Colombo to the North, the city is a thriving wholesale and retail center and contains a number of popular schools. Kurunegala was the capital of an ancient Sri Lankan kingdom for 50 years, from the end of the 13th century to the beginning of the 14th century and the area has an abundance of religious and cultural sites. The city is surrounded by large rocky outcrops, paddy fields, coconut estates and lakes.
