Sri Lanka Things to Do: 539 reviews and 890 photos


Situated on the midway between Kandy and Polonnaruwa, Dambulla is a convenient short stopover to visit the famous cave temples.
These are man-made grottos full of paintings (covering almost every furface) and statues of Sinhalese Buddhism.
Raising 160m above the aurrounding countryside they offer as well wonderful viewa across the tropical plains.
