Behold the ancient monument ruins, the Buddhist magnificent sculptures, the Golden Cave Temple which dates back to prior 2nd century.

Next thing to do in Sri Lanka is to go ‘caving’. This is a new and rather unusual experience as Sri Lanka has many caves spread across its land where you can explore and take photos.
