Sri Lanka, set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, has a history dating back to the birth of time. It is a place where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoilt. Sri Lanka’s attributes are many to list. Very few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area, as Sri Lanka has. Its 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites filled with mystery and turbulence, dating back a historical connection with India. Sri Lanka’s multifold pleasures relating to its natural reserves and wildlife reserves have been enchanting people since ages. Legendary temples boast beautiful details crafted by artisans through the centuries. Sri Lanka is spectacular, it’s affordable and it’s still mostly uncrowded. This is an island of magical proportions, once known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, and ‘Ceylon’.
