Dambulla Cave Temple
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.
