The cultural triangle of Sri Lanka island is the linking of three of the islands ancient capitals: Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Kandy. Within this triangle are at least seven UNESCO world heritage sites and ruins dating back to 4th century B.C. For this reason, the triangle very much represents the heart of the country’s cultural heritage and spirit.
It reminds visitors of the fascinating narrative through which various civilisations have passed through and shaped the present day. Some of the sites you will be able to see here include the Sigiriya rock fortress, rock temple caves at Dambulla, the birthplace of Sri Lankan Buddhism at Mihintale, and the Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy.
That’s to name just a few! Notably, there are also the elephants at Minneriya. The environment within the triangle is perfect for going on walks or bike rides too, during which you can take in the surroundings and perhaps stop for a snack in a local eatery. There are many hotels that provide the ultimate accommodation location for keen sightseers.
