The site has been in continuous use for over 22 centuries, when it was occupied by a Buddhist monastic establishment, following the arrival of Buddhism on the island. Remains of 80 rock shelter residences established at that time on the site have been identified. Likely in the 1st century B.C., the uppermost group of shelters on Dambulla's South face were transformed into shrines. These transformations continued and were intensified between the 5th and 13th centuries: cave-temples were extended into the sheltering rock, and brick walls constructed to screen the caves. By the end of the 12th century, with the introduction by King Nissanka Malla of sculpture to the caves on the upper terrace, echoing the rock carving that had preceded it, the caves assumed their present general forms and layout. This cultural landscape is an extraordinary and unique complex: the cave-temple, rock paintings in five caves and 157 statues of various sizes. Dambulla bears witness in its richly layered composite nature to the use of the entire site for close to four millennia.” Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage – set amongst the verdant hills of Kegalle is a unique orphanage, where the tiny tots weigh 60 kg or more. This is the Pinnewela Elephant Orphanage, the world's first and only elephant orphanage established to feed, nurse and house young elephants lost or abandoned by their mothers. Other occupants are elephants displaced from their natural environs by development projects or those found wounded. Visitors could see the baby elephants being fed milk from gigantic feeding bottles or bathed in the river which flows nearby – an unforgettable sight! Established in 1975, by the Wildlife Department and National Zoological gardens which subsequently led to a breeding programme through which more than twenty five elephants have been born since 1984. Colombo – the trade and commercial capital has long been the traditional gateway to the Orient. Sri Lanka’s largest city, it is located on the west coast and draws together all the cultures, religions and influences of foreign lands into a pot-pourri of sounds, smells and a kaleidoscope of colour. The original traders and settlers - the Arabs, Portuguese, Dutch and the British have left in their wake churches and monuments, names and religions, costumes and food and smatterings of their languages which have been absorbed into the speech of the Sri Lankan. Today, Colombo is a fascinating city - a happy blend of east and west, past and present, with a charm of its own. A less known but amazingly true fact is that Colombo has a superb range of high quality restaurants serving food from all over the world and some of the best shopping opportunities in Asia. The main seaport of Sri Lanka is in Colombo and adjoining it, is Pettah, a local bazaar and trading area. Other places of interest are the beautiful Buddhist temples, Hindu temples, mosques, the historic Wolfendhal church, (1749) residential areas where you find the stately homes of the affluent, , the Ceramic Corporation famous for its well known brand “Noritake” and ODEL the renowned shopping centre.
Day 7 Departure
Breakfast at the hotel, Proceed to the airport for the departure.
I had the most amazing trip ever. The island really does have so much to offer - nature, valley, amazing beaches, beautiful wildlife, the most incredibly interesting historical and religious destination, amazing food, good choice of accommodation to match all budgets. If anyone would like to have this amazing experience doesn’t hesitate to get in touch with asap holiday team.
We were greeted at Colombo Airport by Asap holidays executive. They assigned a driver cum guide for the whole tour. After a short drive to our first hotel we spent the rest of the day on the beach. It was a beautiful welcome break after such a long travel. The whole trip arranged by the Asap holidays was enjoyable, interesting and we would recommend it to anyone who wishes to get more out of a holiday. Friendly staff and good service by team.
I was in Sri Lanka for a week in end of Feb. This is my third trip there. The last time I was there in 2012. That time I enjoyed very much. The place has considerable changes. I've been to many places but this was the better experience than the last one. On both time, it was a business tour. But, Asap holidays make it interesting one.
We stayed at a perfect and amazing place. It was an eco-lodge and a very unique experience in a peaceful environment with all natural surroundings. The hosts organized dinner differently every evening and one night we went out on the lake side on a pontoon and served by candlelight dinner. After dinner, the oarsman asked to blow out the candles and we glided back to shore by the light of the moon. Really very memorable trip!
We enjoyed the mix of culture, nature, scenery and relaxing beach holiday at Sri Lanka with the services of asap holidays. They offered us a lot but we didn't try to do too much in this trip due to short time. One must spend at least 2 or 3 nights at each place to enjoy. We will meet you soon asap holidays in our next trip.
