Sri Lanka is home to one of the oldest civilizations in the world and its documented history goes back more than 2500 years. Due to this rich heritage the Island nation has become one of the most attractive tourism destinations in the world. Ruins of well planned ancient cities, majestic palaces, expansive reservoirs, stunning temples, lush gardens, amazing monuments and works of Art are all characteristic of the glorious and rich heritage of our past.

The cultural heritage of the country is mostly a record of the progress of Buddhism. Sri Lanka’s richest archaeological heritage sites are located within the famous cultural triangle which links the ancient capitals of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Kandy, with Sigiriya in the center. Buddhist Kingdoms flourished within the influence of Theravada Buddhism and Sinhalese culture spread far and wide.
