The second largest city in Sri Lanka, Kandy is perhaps the center of all Singhalese culture. The cool atmosphere and the picturesque surroundings enhance the enchantment of the citadel that is teeming with traditions of Singhalese art, music and dance. The sacred tooth of the Buddha, Sri Lanka's most prized possession and the symbol of sovereignty over the island, was moved to this hill city in the 16th century and still sits in the beautiful Dalada Maligawa. This temple stands almost alone near the shore of the serene Kandy Lake. It is a splendid work of art in itself.

Pinnawela

Pinnawela is a small town a short distance from Kegalle. It is not particularly fascinating except for one unique orphanage situated in this town, the Pinnawela elephant orphanage. Established in 1975 as a place to house young elephants who found themselves separated and lost from their herds or orphaned by poachers, Pinnawela has now become a popular tourist site.The orphanage is situated besides a small river and it is captivating to watch the baby elephants bathe each other whilst at play.

Sigiriya

The sight is stupendous even today: a massive monolith of red stone rises 600 feet from the green scrub jungle to accentuate the lucid blue of the sky. How overpowering, then, this rock fortress of Sigiriya must have been when it was crowned by a palace 15 centuries ago.
Sigiriya was no gloomy and forbidding fortification. At the brief height of its glory - a flowering of only 18 years - it was one of the loveliest royal cities that ever graced the earth. And today, it is perhaps the single most remarkable memory for visitors to Sri Lanka.Ruins of the fabled palace spread across the very peak of the "Lion Rock", so-named, perhaps, because visitors formerly began the final harrowing ascent through the open jaws and throat (giriya) of a lion (sinha) whose likeness was once sculpted halfway up the monolith. Only gigantic paws remain today. Within a grotto on Sigiriya's sheer west face, beautiful bare-breasted maidens still smile from incredible fresco paintings. Surrounding the foot of the rock, extending for several hundred meters, are Asia's oldest surviving landscape gardens, incorporating lovely ponds around the Sigiriya's plinth of fallen boulders.

Mihintale

In 247 B.C. Buddhism was first introduced to Sri Lanka on the mountain of Mihintale. Since then, various kings of Sri Lanka have blessed this rock with magnificent masterpieces of architecture. These include a hospital, a monastic complex, stupas and dagobas. While some of these structures are in an almost perfect state of preservation, some others are in complete ruin. The most spectacular of these is the Kantaka Chaitiya, which displays some of the finest architecture of the early Anuradhapura era.
The climb to the summit consists of almost a thousand steps.
The journey is not as strenuous as it may seem however, as it is sporadically interrupted by the awe-inspiring architectural remnants of the past glory of the hill. If this is not motivation enough for a weary traveler to undertake the task, the superb view at the summit of the great dagobas of Anuradhapura definitely will be.

Horton Plains

High up in the central hills of the island, nestling on a wild and windswept saddle at an elevation of 7200 feet where the bright and clear, the soft and misty change from moment to moment is one of Sri Lanka's most forbidding yet fascinating and stupendously beautiful regions.As the name implies, here are a series of vast open plains rolling along as far as the eye could see, dipping now and then into misty vales and mossy, muddy marshes, often rising up again into pointed peaks and running into deeply wooded areas of moss covered forest. Vast jungle covered cliffs of awesome height & ice cold, crystal clear streams, pools and waterfalls mark her verdant face. The Horton Plains grips you with her unique atmosphere and ever-changing character while you are there and then beckons you again with her cold, stark beauty when you have left her. Two of the main attractions are "Worlds End" & "Bakers Falls" spectacular views are available in the world’s end where the plateau plunges into 2900 ft in a vertical drop. Due to the high elevation and wind swept areas Horton Plains has a unique vegetation and is famous for many rare and endemic highland birds.

Hundreds of years prior to the birth of Christ, while other regions were emerging from the stone ages, Sri Lanka was a land of highly advanced cities of which Anuradhapura was the greatest. Its ruins today display infinite detail of rare beauty, delicately set in the world’s mightiest masses of monumental masonry, second only to the pyramids of Egypt.
As it was only the Buddhist religion that was considered worthy of permanence, Buddhist structures alone were given to the imperishable medium of stone.
For Buddhists there are eight places of particular sanctity within Anuradhapura. These are the Sri Maha Bodhi, the Ruwanweli Seya, the Thuparama Dagoba, the Jetavanarama Dagoba, the Abhayagiri Dagoba, the Lankarama Dagoba, the Mirisaweti dagoba and the Isurumuniya Viharaya.
From a non-religious point of view, Anuradhapura is captivating for its architectural excellence. The city has an appeal that relates to almost anyone and even the least artistically inclined traveler will find himself in awe and wonder.

Dambulla

Of all the many cave temples in Sri Lanka the Raja Maha Vihara at the village of Dambulla is by far the most impressive. It consists of a series of five caverns. The temple is on the summit of a huge slope rock face that rises more than 350 feet above the village.
The most interesting is the largest cave, which is the fourth on your right after you pass through a gateway. The ceiling of this cavern is fully illustrated with paintings that follow the natural folds of the rock so closely that it almost appears to be made of cloth. Among the cave’s numerous statues are the earliest devala statues to appear in a Buddhist image house.
The cave’s history dates to the 2nd or 1st century B.C. when King Valagambahu took refuge here after being driven out of Anuradhapura by invading armies.

Polonnaruwa

Polonnaruwa, which was the capital of Sri Lanka from the 11th to the 13th century has more to see and leaves less to speculation than Anuradhapura, the capital that preceded it. Due to its more recent past, Polonnnaruwa is strewn with ruins in a resplendent state of preservation. Ornamental friezes and delicately carved pillars decorate most of the ruins, making the metropolis fascinating to any visitor.
The Terrace of the Tooth Relic, at the heart of the city is a platform that houses 12 of the grandest buildings. Of these, the Vatadage and the Thuparama image house are the most spectacular. Further away from the centre of the metropolis is the Gal Vihara, which consists of four statues of the Lord Buddha.

Yala

Among the many untouched beauties of Sri Lanka are her rich and varied wildlife and jungles. One-tenth of the entire land of Sri Lanka is under the Department of Wildlife Conservation and thus there are many sanctuaries and national parks. The most frequented national park of Sri Lanka is Yala. It is mainly a thorny scrub forest, but it is the best place for visitors to see elephants in their natural habitat. In recent years the chances of spotting a leopard or a bear also quite frequent.
In the early months of the year, there are scattered rain showers in this region, but this is the prime time in which to see large herds of elephants with calves. Another sight not to be missed is the mating dance of the exquisite peacock.
The Yala National Park has a few little bungalows in which tourists can spend a few nights in the wilderness. These bungalows, which are lit by kerosene lamps and lanterns, are equipped with only a few modern commodities. A night's stay is quite memorable, as herds of deer, wild boar and even elephants occasionally venture quite close to the bungalows.
Guides, commonly called "trackers" always accompany visitors to the park. They are amazingly adept at spotting wildlife camouflaged in the wilderness and are very interesting companions.
