The much-storied cave temple complex of Dambulla is situated some 75 km from The Radh Hotel. The caves of Dambulla were occupied in the ancient times by Buddhist hermits. The antiquity of this place has been corroborated by the presence of pre-Christian inscriptions in Brahmi character immediately below the drip-ledge of the central cave. This great Buddhist monument is a must-see attraction for those who wish to explore the historically important attractions in the Central province. Even if there’s a long drive involved, paying a visit to this magnificent rock temple complex is quite worth the trouble.
