Dambulla

The pride of Dambulla is undoubtedly the Dambulla Raja Maha Viharaya, also known as Rangiri Dambulu Viharaya, which is the largest of cave temple in Sri Lanka which survives up to today. The history of this temple runs far back to time of the Sinhalese King known as Valagamba in 1st B.C., when the caves had been inhabited by Buddhist monks who used them to meditate. When the capital city Anuradhapura had been invaded by a foreign army those days, those monks had helped the king as he sought protection and had hidden the king in the caves. He has built this temple as a gratitude for those Buddhist monks after regaining the throne by defeating the foreigners. read more…
