You can witness traditional Kandyan dances, participate in authentic Ceylon culinary experiences and even explore busy and crowded markets in order to truly get the experience of the nation’s culture.

Explore The Rich Heritage Of Sri Lanka

Some of Sri Lanka’s top cultural attractions are the ancient city of Polonnaruwa, the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the Dambulla Cave Temples and the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. These sites are a reflection of the country’s rich heritage and history.

The best time for a Sri Lankan culture tour is generally from December to April, during the dry season for the west and south coasts. As for the east coast, the best time to visit would be from May to September. This period offers fewer chances of rainfall and pleasant weather. This makes it ideal for enjoying outdoor activities and exploring cultural sites.

To provide a glimpse into its diverse heritage, Sri Lanka hosts a rich tapestry of cultural festivals. The grand Esala Perahera in Kandy  which occurs in July/August and the colorful Vesak celebration (which occurs in May) are notable Buddhist festivals. Poson Poya (which occurs in June) marks the arrival of Buddhism in Anuradhapura, while Navam Perahera (which occurs in February) flares up in Colombo. But that’s not all! Don’t miss out on the Kataragama Esala Festival (which occurs in July/August) for a unique Hindu experience. These festivals offer an engaging involvement  in Sri Lanka’s cultural mosaic.

In addition to the well-known cultural sites, you should consider visiting places like the city of Galle, which is known for its well-preserved Dutch colonial architecture. Apart from this, there are lesser-visited archaeological sites and temples in the east and north of Sri Lanka. These areas offer a different perspective on the island’s diverse culture and history.
