Dam­bulla Cave Tem­ple

Asian Geographic - - Celebratin­g Outstandin­g Brands In Asia -

Sit­u­ated in the cen­tral part of Sri Lanka, Dam­bulla Cave Tem­ple is the largest and best-pre­served cave tem­ple com­plex in the coun­try. It was awarded the World Her­itage Site in 1991, ow­ing to the cave’s preser­va­tion of its beau­ti­ful murals. The ceil­ing is painted with in­tri­cate pat­terns of re­li­gious im­ages following the con­tours of the rock and the cave is filled with Bud­dha stat­ues. Tourists are ad­vised to wear mod­est cloth­ing when en­ter­ing the tem­ples, sim­i­lar to many re­li­gious build­ings in South­east Asia.
