Dambulla dates back to the 1st centuary BC. It was used as a refuge for an unwanted King. After his troubles & he regained his Kingdom he has the interior of the caves carved in Rock Temples.

There are 5 caves all together, with roughly 150 Bubbhist images.

There are wonderful views from the Temples of the surrounding countryside
