About Sri Lanka - Heritage Lifestyle

Other Life Styles: Culture | Wildlife | Half Board | Adventure | Weddings | Nature | Spa | Golf | Trekking | Anniversary | AyurvedicSri Lanka Heritage City
Sri Lanka might be a small island but it contains seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its compact shores – the same as heritage-packed Egypt. Six are testament to a civilization with over 2,000 years of recorded history, while the seventh, a natural site, boasts some of the highest biodiversity outside the Amazon basin. Two of the sites are scared Anuradhapura, probably the grandest city in Asia at its prime, and the ancient city of Polonnaruwa, feature enormous dagobas (dome-shaped structures) and Buddha statues. The Jetavana dagoba at Anuradhapura (3rd c.BC), was 120m tall, the world’s third highest structure. Now 75m, it still has the distinction of being the world’s largest brick structure.
