Tours Visiting Cultural Triangle, Sri Lanka | Wendy Wu Tours

Centred around the heartlands of Sri Lanka’s ancient civilisations, the Cultural Triangle stretches between the highland cultural stronghold of Kandy and the two old capitals of Polonnaruwa and Anuraphapura. As the lush highlands melt into the hot, dry plains, there is no better place to truly soak up Sri Lanka’s rich and unique history – 5 of the country’s 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites are in this area – visiting ancient civilisations, magnificent frescoes and sacred Buddhist sites. No wonder these historical plains are also known as ‘The King’s Land’!
