Dambulla Cave Temple

The cave-temples at Dambulla are a veritable storehouse of fine Sinhala art and showcase some of the most stunning murals on the island. Five dimly-lit caves moulded out of one huge rocky overhang at the top of a steep 160m granite outcrop are home to an enviable collection of breathtaking statues, carvings, stupas and paintings jam-packed into almost every bit of space. Exquisite story-telling murals radiating red and gold hues from walls and ceilings illustrate magnificent battle scenes and the Buddha’s own fight against temptation on his path to enlightenment.
