Things to Discover in Sri Lanka for Art & Architecture Lovers

Those who love art and architecture have much to enjoy on a visit to Sri Lanka that has a rich heritage in both these aspects. To get an idea of artistic traditions, one can take in everything from local clay pottery to intricate rock frescoes in places like Sigiriya which can be easily reached from a Kandalama hotel. When it comes to architecture, pride of place goes to the creations of the world-renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, known for his tropical modernist style; his designs include works like Heritance Kandalama, a unique “Safe & Secure” certified eco-hotel seamlessly merged with nature. More fascinating architecture can be seen at historical sites like Polonnaruwa as well as in Galle with its Dutch colonial remnants.
