Traces of the Ancient Kingdom – Day 5 Blog – Dambulla

It only seems right on a Sunday to visit Dambulla Caves, one of the most famed places of worship in the country. It’s a well-preserved cave temple complex dating back to the 1st century, and houses some of the most sacred images of Buddha. Whilst the city itself is a commercial hub – Dambulla is the food-bowl of Sri Lanka with its fertile plains; the fact it is such an important holy place is what draws people to it. This should not be missed.
