Step Into the Past

On the world stage, ancient Lanka was enjoying palaces, water tanks, irrigation systems and planned gardens by the 10th century. The Mahawamsa and Chulawamsa Chronicles were written in the 5th century and by the 15th century - Literature had reached its pinnacle. There was an explosion of Architectural prowess and impressive Engineering feats, especially in and around the Cultural Triangle formed by Kandy, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura. This was the chosen space by the kings dating back to 1 BC. With their reign came plans to defend the land from foreign invaders, and plans to develop their cities not merely in grandeur but with foresight and impressive planning. King Vijaya Bahu was the first to recognise Polonnaruwa as a potential capital city and initiated development. Anuradhapura caught the attention of King Pandukabhaya around the 4th century and it too, enjoyed the construction of monasteries, temples and palaces. Kandy, the home of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, has always been a bastion of defense; safeguarding the Sacred Tooth Relic and being the last Kingdom to fall to the British colonial powers. On that note, there is so much history to see, in terms of forts, churches, majestic buildings and quaint cobblestone roads – whether in Kandy, Galle or Colombo.  And in all that, is the diverse landscape of Sri Lanka; from the lush flora upcountry, to the beaches and the biodiverse fauna at the Yala National Park – where even here, historical sites can be sighted. There is so much to see in Sri Lanka, with history etched on it –so take to the adventure of stepping into the past.
