Cultural Triangle holidays

The sacred cities of Anuradhapura and Sigiriya, the ancient city of Polonnaruwa and the Golden Temple of Dambulla together make up Sri Lanka’s famed cultural triangle. The picturesque region, situated to the north of Kandy, is an ideal setting from which to discover Sri Lanka’s cultural and religious history, lost cities, ruined palaces, cave temples, striking murals and centuries-old frescoes. Any first-time visit to Sri Lanka cannot be complete without a trip to the cultural triangle.
