Sri Dalada Maligawa or the temple of the sacred tooth relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka. It is located in the royal palace complex of the former kingdom of Kandy, which houses the relic of the tooth of Lord Buddha.
The ancient city of Sigiriya is a premier Eco-tourism destination in Sri Lanka which was designated a cultural world heritage site in 1982. It is also proposed that the site should be named the eighth wonder of the world, indicating it is in the same league as other international wonders such as the Grand Canyon and ancient pyramids.
Surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is justifiably famous as a tropical beach destination. Golden palm fringed beaches, aquamarine waters and sweeping coastal views are archetypal images of paradise that kick started the tourism industry in places such as Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna.
