This island could be more than 3000 years old, however, there is documented history of 3000 years. This documented history has the evidences of prehistoric humans and their settlement which are 125,000 years old.
The culture of the country is diverse and has different ethnicities and their religions. The most populous and found ethnicity is Sinhalese. These make the majority residing here, whereas Tamil communities make the minority. However, despite being known as the minority, Tamils have played an influential part in making the significant history of the island. Both these communities have Christians in the majority which are recent converts, keeping their traditional culture intact. On the island, Burghers, Moors, Chinese and Malays are other significant groups, adding to the population of the country.
Sri Lanka is a part of Indian Plate which was earlier a major part of Indo-Australian Plate. There is a land bridge between India and Sri Lanka and the religion and practices are more like common. This land bridge is even described in Hindu Mythology as the link to Lanka, which was the home of Demon Ravana where Devi Sita was kept hostile. Therefore, you indulge more into the religious practices of the country and temples and get glimpses of the Ramayana.
