Travel Back In Time

Dambulla, Polonnaruwa, Kandy and Sigiriya  all fall within the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka; the seat of ancient civilisation dating way back to 4 BC. A narrative speaks from a bygone era, as you take in the colourful murals which cover over 2000 square metres, in the Dambulla Cave Temple. The Temple is also famous for the 150 Buddha statues housed in the five caves. The irrigation systems, sculpture and stone workmanship, as seen in the Gal Vihara and its granite statues, are wondrous to behold in Polonnaruwa, a city which flourished under King Parakrama Bahu in the 12th century. You will only be further amazed at the sight of the 5th Century Rock Fortress in Sigiriya. Known as the Lion Rock, the site showcases a planned garden city, water systems and the beautiful frescoes – in the once impenetrable kingdom of King Kasyapa. Travelling to Central Sri Lanka, Kandy is a bustling city with mountain ranges protecting what was once the last kingdom to resist foreign forces in the 19th century. As you drive into Kandy city, the Kandy Lake ushers you to the sight of the Dalada Maligawa. The Temple of the Tooth which was built initially in the 16th century, is where the tooth relic of Lord Buddha is enshrined. Truly a hotpot of culture and faiths, you can easily walk through the streets of Kandy and see Buddhist and Hindu temples, mosques and churches – dating back in time.
