UNESCO World Heritage Sites

It is time to lose yourself in the mystical world of Sri Lanka’s ancient history and culture. Exquisitely carved stone friezes, serene statues of Lord Buddha, dazzlingly decorated temples built into rocky overhangs, and feats of irrigation that amaze the world even today are just some of the treasures left by a proud civilisation stretching back more than two thousand years.

The remains of Sri Lanka’s ancient and medieval civilisations — palaces, monasteries, shrines, water gardens and temples — bear witness to thriving kingdoms and to the influence of Buddhism. Sri Lanka showcases no fewer than 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites within just 65,610 square kilometers, all remarkably preserved to surpass more well-known world class attractions.
