The Cave Temple. Dambulla – Sri Lanka

The Cave Temple. Dambulla - Sri Lanka

This temple is one of the most beautiful places I have seen in the world. It is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka and contains paintings and statues are related to Buddha and his life. There total of 153 Buddha statues, 3 statues of Sri Lankan kings and 4 statues of gods and goddesses. The colouring and painting on the statues are beautifully intricate and I could have happily stayed there for hours and hours. It was cool inside the caves and they have existed as a complex since the first century BC.
