Sri Lanka’s rich history
If you wish to make your vacation a discovery of the rich history and culture of an island, here is your chance. Sri Lanka is a country that exudes cultural diversity and spirituality.
If that sounds like your kind of vacation, take a visit to the Galle Dutch Fort and marvel at its colonial charm. You can visit Sigiriya, which is a Unesco world heritage site. You could say Sigiriya is a whole different world that showcases the rich cultural heritage of the island. Once you marvel at the ancient ruins of the Sigiriya rock fortress, you can pay a visit to Dambulla. It is a couple of hours’ drive from Sigiriya, so you can visit it on the same day.
The Cave Temple
The Dambulla cave temple has art pieces, including sculptures and paintings, that showcase the incredible artistry of Sri Lankan artists. Dambulla has also declared a World Heritage Site in 1991. We think you should witness the greatness of it yourself. So do not skip a chance to visit. Not only will it be a fantastic experience to explore the artistry, but also an incredible learning experience for you and your family.
The cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa are both ancient cities that you need to visit as well. These historic cities showcase the artistry, spirituality, traditions, and customs of ancient Sri Lanka. You will get to see temples, sculptures, and carvings—not just any carvings—carvings done on stones. Plus, they are both UNESCO heritage sites.
On the other hand, you can visit the beautiful city of Kandy. One place you must not miss out on during your visit to Kandy is the temple of the sacred tooth relic—one of the most prestigious temples in the country. The rituals performed by the locals in respect to the sacred tooth relic carry a beautiful story and have historic value throughout. We would recommend planning your visit during the Kandy Perahera, which is a glorious religious ritual/festival held in July and August.
Family tours in Sri Lanka for adventure lovers
If you wish to make your vacation full of adventure, why not try a wildlife safari? The Yala national park and the Minneriya national park are perfect spots to get close to the wildlife.
