Anuradhapura is considered to be the cradle of ancient Sri Lankan civilization and the sacred centre of the island's Buddhism. There are some well preserved ruins of ancient palaces, monasteries and monuments attracting visitors to explore. It also contains the holy 2,000-year-old Bo Tree, grown from a sapling of the Bhodi tree under which the Lord Buddha attained enlightenment. This ancient city is renowned one of the world's major archaeological sites and boasts the most unearthed Buddha's relics according to historical records. It was named a World Heritage Site in 1982.
Sigiriya or Lion's Rock is an ancient rock fortress located in the northern Matale District, near the town of Dambulla. The name refers to a site of historical and archaeological significance that is dominated by a massive column of rock nearly 200 metres (660 ft) high. According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicle the Culavamasa, this site was selected by King Kasyapa (477 – 495 CE) for his new capital. He built his palace on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colorful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The capital and the royal palace was abandoned after the king's death. It was used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century. It is considered to be one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. Sigiriya was named a World Heritage Site in 1982.
The Dambulla Cave Temple, is often known as the Royal Rock Temple. It is made up of series of five caves instilled with over twenty centuries of history and religious significance. Inhabited since prehistoric times, it was in the third century BC that a monastery was initially constructed at Dambulla. In the first century AD, the caves began to be transformed into shrines, a process which continued until the eighteenth century. The largest and grandest of the caves is known as Maharaja Vihara. Dambulla Cave Temple has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1991.
The Temple of the Tooth is a sacred Buddhist site, popularly known as the city of Senkadagalapura. It was the last capital of the Sinhala Kings whose patronage enabled the Dinahala culture to flourish for more than 2,500 years. until the occupation of Sri Lanka by the British in 1815. Located in Kandy, a longtime center of the Buddhist faith, the stunning 17th-century temple is believed to house the left upper tooth of the Lord Buddha himself. This precious relic attracts white-clad pilgrims, bearing lotus blossoms and fragrant frangipanni, every day.

The Tea Plantation Tour tour provides an insight into Sri Lanka’s tea making history by visiting an old tea factory and exploring the entire process behind tea. personalized tours through their farm, giving in depth guides and descriptions of all the stages behind producing tea. Located in Nuwara Eliya, the Tea Center is a good place to purchase some of the area’s best quality teas, which make the perfect gift. The beautiful property boasts a restaurant and cafe at the front, ideal if you are in need of more than just a hot beverage. Time permitting, we will take a walk around Horton Plains National Park which emphasizes the natural beauty of Nuwara Eliya and make a stop at the World’s End.
The Train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella might be the most fun day of the journey! It's all fun, but this day will leave you breathless. The train takes three hours to go from Nuwara Eliya to Ella. The train crosses a lot of mountain ranges and descends from 1800m down to 1000m, passing through tea plantations, eucalyptus forests, mountains, villages and more tea plantations. The train track snakes it's way along the edge of the mountains overlooking huge valleys. Seemingly within arm's reach of tea plantations and small villages, then forests and waterfalls, before crossing to the other side of the range and being greeted with still more valleys and tea plantations and small villages. Everyone agrees without fail, the scenery is absolutely stunning.

Just made a trip to Sri Lanka for 9 days with my Bestie. We did lots of sightseeing and adventurous hiking to famous spots in Colombo, Sigiriya, Ella, Kandy, Mattala and few others. We had an amazing experience with Dilhan. He was very helpful in guiding and assisting us throughout the trip, being punctual and patience to make us happy and satisfied in what we want or required. He also assisted us in communicating with the locals in their local dialect. It was indeed very fortunate for Jayeswari & myself to have found him for this adventurous trip of ours. Thanks a bunch for your service & care. Wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
Hi Dilhan! We are finally back at home from our 6 week journey, and we wanted to take a moment to thank you before any more time passes by. Of all the places we visited - Malaysia, Thailand, India, and the Middle East - Sri Lanka was our favorite spot, in part because of you! We cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had with you and Chamila. It made our trip very special. The time you spent with us and the places we visited will stay in our hearts forever. I don't know what we expected from Sri Lanka - but you exceeded our expectations. When I reflect upon our travels and think of Sri Lanka, I will always remember your wonderful TLC and smiling face :) Thank you so much. Blessings to you and your family.

Very helpful for us. He helped us with too much. Very safe driving. We saw Sri Lanka culture from local point. We hope we can return. Very beautiful counrtry and people.
