The Cultural Triangle

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Colombo – Kandy – Anhuradapura – Polonnaruwa – Sigiriya – Kandy The Cultural Triangle is an area in the Northern District of Sri Lanka. The places to see there are architectural remains of rock top fortresses and ancient temples. Start at either Colombo (or Kandy if you just did the mountains road trip). First destination is the ancient city of Anurhadapura where you can visit the ancient Boddhi tree or the giant dagoba. If you are lucky enough to be around on Poya day you can join the worshippers that go there to celebrate the full moon. After spending the night in Anurhadapura or Habarana, drive back to Polonaruwa to visit the temples there. Check out the giant Buddha statue that was featured in a Duran Duran video in the 80’s and have day looking around. In the evening, drive to Sigiriya Lion rock, climb to the top and see the remains of an old fortress that used to belong to an ancient Kandyan king. Spend the night in Sigiriya and then drive back to Kandy and Colombo, or do the mountains road trip.
