Located in the Matale district, Dambulla is part of the cultural triangle and is home to the world famous Dambulla cave temples.
The cave temples complex that lies atop a massive hill on the edge of the town is one of the eight UNESCO world heritage sites in the country and is renowned for its unique mural paintings and sculptures.
If you are not a history-buff, fret not, because there is more to Dambulla. . .You can choose to visit the Minneriya National Park and head out for a safari ride to enjoy the sights of the many elephant herds that inhabit the sanctuary or increase the adventure quotient with a hike up the mystical mountains of Ritigala or a hot air balloon ride (available between November – May).
