SRI LANKA / The Cultural Triangle
Untitled Document

Cultural Triangle takes you on a journey back in time. You will gain a better understanding of the island’s remarkably rich cultural and religious history that dates back 2,500 years.
NOTE: This trip is done perfectly in combination with short stays at the Maldives or Dubai

 

Day 1: Colombo Airport - Horathapola

We will meet you at Colombo airport and transfer you to HoratLuxury Travel Sri Lankahapola Estate, an hour’s drive north of the airport. Unwind and relax in their beautiful gardens and enjoy what many have described as Sri Lanka’s best rice and curry dinner!

 

Days 2, 3 & 4: Horathapola – Cultural Triangle

Sri Lanka’s famous cultural triangle offers plenty to see and do over the next three days. The trip from Horathapola to the Cultural Triangle takes approximately 3 hours.

The Cultural Triangle

We will arrange a visit to the 5th century rock fortress of Sigiriya, also known as the "Lion Rock", is an absolute must. The best time to visit is 7.30 AM. If you are lucky you might have the site all to yourself, indeed a real treat. We will also visit other sites of important historical and cultural significance including either Anuradnapura or Pollonaruwa, the first and second capital of the ancient Singhalese civilization.
Anuradnapura was the first royal capital flourished for 1300 years. This sacred city is thought to have been established around a cutting from the ’tree of enlightenment’, the Buddha’s fig tree, brought there in the 3rd century B.C. by Sanghamitta, the founder of an order of Buddhist nuns. Hidden away in dense jungle for many years, the splendid site spans over several miles with its palaces, monasteries and monuments.
Polonnaruwa became Sri Lanka’s capital in 10th century AC at a time when Sri Lanka achieved its triumph as a civilizations with an ingenious network of hydraulic engineering -- the construction of water tanks and irrigation canals. In 1411, an invasion from Southern India forced the Sinhalese to abandon the city. Pollonaruwa is well maintained and makes for a great half day visit.

 

Days 5 & 6: Cultural Triangle - Kandy

Kandy is a half day’s journey from the cultural triangle. On route we will visit a spice garden. The following day a city tour includes the fabulous Botanical gardens and the Temple of the Tooth, in which a sacred relic of the Lord Buddha is enshrined. Another option is to see Kandy’s sites on the first day in Kandy and on the second day head over to Victoria Reservoir for a round of Golf and lunch, colonial style, at the club house overlooking the Victoria Reservoir.

Kandy

Kandy is known for its mild climate, colonial architecture, its spectacular festival - The Kandy Perahera which takes place in August. The Perahera is a procession of the sacred Buddha relic through the streets of Kandy, accompanied by dancers, musicians, entertainers and elephants. Kandy is also well known for being home to Sri Lanka’s holiest temple, the Temple of the Tooth. Victoria Reservoir, a short half hour ride from Kandy is home to Sri Lanka’s best golf course, the Victoria Golf Club, regarded by many as one of the most scenic golf courses in Asia.

 

Day 7: Kandy To Colombo

After a lazy breakfast we travel west to Colombo.

Colombo

A final stop in Colombo will not disappoint. A glimpse beneath the chaotic faade of this metropolis on the banks of the Indian Ocean will reveal a treasure of delights and surprises to the inquisitive visitor. We always encourage our guest to experience Colombo for at least a day or two. Colombo is not a city where crowds of tourist are shoved from one monument to the next. It is not a city of shopping malls or gigantic plasma screens pumping out advertisements night and day. It is a city with charming little hideaways waiting to be discovered. We have carefully handpicked the best shops and galleries, and the best restaurants. Sri Lanka In Style offers a personalized shopping tour of Colombo for those interested.

 

Day 8: Colombo – Colombo Airport

Depart in good time for your flight back home. The journey to the airport will take approximately 1 hours although it can take 1.5 hours during peak traffic hours.
