Ceylon Paradise, Sri Lanka!

The culture of the country has developed over the years and is a rich blend of all the influences that the country and its people have been exposed to so far. However, the most visible impact on the Sri Lankan culture has been from Buddhism. People mainly follow the Buddhism with numerous Buddhist stupas spread throughout the country and several festivals being celebrated on important events in and around Buddha’s life. The festivals of the country are also a reflection of the great culture of this small country. Particularly famous is the Kandy Esala Perahera celebrated in the month of July or August. This festival is a spectacular ten days event culminating in a procession taken out in respect of the sacred Tooth Relic of Buddha. Another festival that strengthens the impact of Buddhism in the country is Duruthu Perahera held in January. The festival is a celebration of Lord Buddha’s visit to the country.

Historical sites such as Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla, once home to ancient kingdoms, still retain many relics and artefacts of bygone eras. The famous rock fortress of Sigiriya and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of Kandy, are must-see places. A multi-religious country, Sri Lanka has many religious festivals that take place year around, such as Vesak for Buddhists, Nallur Festival for Hindus and Madhu Festival for Catholics.
