WELCOME TO DAMBULLA
 
The famous Rock Cave Temple at Dambulla is the most visited monastery in the Island. It is the most impressive cave temple in Sri Lanka, with five caves under a vast overhanging rock, carved with a drip line to keep the interiors dry.

On entering these elegantly portal led caves you may think you have stepped into an ornate tent, hung with bright carpets. The ceilings are painted with intricate patterns of religious images following the contours of the rock. There are images of the Buddha, and Gods and Goddesses. There are innumerable painted sculptures, including a life size effigy of the last Kandyan king and much older statues of Hindu gods.
