Located in the south of the Indian subcontinent, Sri Lanka (previously Ceylon) has different landscapes ranging from rainforests, beaches and tea plantations to older Buddhist ruins and progressive urban cities. Its culture also has a colonial impact and renovation to some extent.

Diversity can be seen in the enriching landscape, and people with different religion and linguistic living in Sri Lanka. The country tends to recognize themselves according to their customs, relations, belief or birthplace and will often stay faithful to those a component of those groups.

Religious places In Sri Lanka, the majority of the people are Sinhalese. However, there are large communities of Muslims, Malays, Tamils, and Burghers. All of them contribute to building this country a rich and lively society. When you walk down the road in Colombo or any city across the country, you will get to see religious places from different religion such as temples, churches, mosques and Buddhist temples.

Museums

A vast network of Archeological museums and national museums, preserved by the Sri Lankan government are spread across the nation and gives a mesmerizing sight into the cultural heritage, tradition and natural history.
