The idea of 2000 year old Buddhist caves doesn’t excite many…until they step inside to discover the carefully carved, beautifully painted statues.  Beginning in 100 BC local kings ordered these caves carved for future generations to marvel at, possibly making them more impressive today than when they were carved.  Of the Ancient Cities in Sri Lanka this is the most impressive and reasonably priced, making it a must-see.
