The island of Sri Lanka has one of the most diversified cultural populations in the world. Sri Lankan culture comprises several practices and rituals that stretch back more than 2000 years and have been passed down through generations. It’s both indigenous and developed through history, commerce, religion, and western colonialism by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the English. Exploring the Sri Lankan heritage and culture is actually very interesting, like the amazing nature.

Sri Lanka’s indigenous people, the ‘Veddas’, have a history dating back thousands of years. These days they still continue to carry forward the legacy of their ancestors, in remote corners of the island.
