Photographer's Note

Most cricket fans will have heard of the town of Dambulla and the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium. The town is visited for more than cricket though and one of the highlights of our trip to Sri Lanka was visiting the Golden Temple.

Dedicated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991, Dambulla Cave Temple (or the Golden Temple of Dambulla) is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Situated in Dambulla, Sri Lanka in a region which includes more than 80 caves, Dambulla Cave Temple features 5 well-preserved caves, each of which houses ancient statues of the Buddha and historic artwork depicting the Buddha's life. The Dambulla Cave Temple grounds also features a functioning Buddhist Monastery dating back to the third and second centuries B.C.
