Around Sri Lanka in 14 Days

The wonder of this island is that it is just packed with an astonishingly varied landscape complemented by historical treasures found like jewels dropped all over this pearly island. Kings who ruled Sri Lanka from as far back as 1 BC ventured not merely to live in luxury but fortified their kingdoms and their people. Temples, monasteries, monuments, gardens and baths, were just some of the structures they built. The historical sites of the Cultural Triangle (Kandy, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura) capture for posterity, the golden era of architecture, trade  and engineering. Irrigation tanks, planned gardens and storeyed monuments, highlight the skill and prowess of a people who built with precision and flair. Amazingly, you will continue to see ruins whichever way you head: be it in Jaffna (North of Sri Lanka), Trincomalee (East), Galle (South) or Colombo (West) – the past will catch up with you. You will be welcomed by salty, humid winds and an almost desert-like landscape in Jaffna, where bicycles are the most popular and convenient mode of transport, in a town with many ancient temples and sites to see. Close to the Central Province, you will be overwhelmed by temples, caves and monasteries in places like Dambulla and Mihintale – besides  retracing the steps that lead to what was once King Kasyapa’s stronghold in Sigiriya. Kandy was the last Kingdom to fall to the British but in its proud spirit of honour, it still maintains it position; as the custodian of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. And you may think that would be all – but there is the country’s national parks, protecting valuable flora and fauna with forests rich in biodiversity.

So why not enjoy a tour of our nation’s jewels? After all, it will only take 14 days…
