Highlights near Dambulla

Buddha's Big Top

Entrance to a Buddhist museum at the foot of the hill housing the Dambulla Cave Temples in Sri Lanka.

Although quite a hike up to the top, the physical exertion is worth it to see the 5 caves, which contain hundreds of statues and paintings of Buddha and his life. The temple complex is designated as a World Heritage Site and sits 160 meters above the surrounding plains, offering a sweeping view of the Sigiriya rock fortress, about 19km in the distance.
