Day 03 & 04 – Dambulla
Damublla is reminiscent of the past. For many centuries, the surroundings of Dambulla, an area of over fifty acres, was the habitation of forest dwelling monks. While these had minimal contact with the public, medication was their main strength. Archaeological data confirm that the cave shrines of Damublla, renowned as the temple of the infinite Buddhas, was a place of religious worship when the capital was at Anuradhapura. According to extant inscriptions, the cave in the shrine as well as in the surroundings were donated to the monks by royalty, nobility, monks and nuns. More recently, the climb to the cave shrine, 600 feet above the plains and 100 feet above sea level, has been made easier.
