First stop today is Dambulla, a unique historical site. The temple’s many caves are a perfect witness to the evolution of the ancient Sri Lankan arts with stunning frescoes, reclining Buddhas and amazing statuary. Lunch today is an elaborate curry rice banquet at Aluwihare Heritage Centre the inspiration of artist Ena da Silva who established a brilliant batik centre here. Reach Kandy in time for the evening devotional drumming ritual at the famed Temple of the Tooth.
