Sri Lanka Heritage Tour-5 Days Tour


Day 1

Time : 6:00 am


From Colombo, continue your journey by private vehicle to Sigiriya. Visit numerous temples and ancient monuments in Anuradhapura on the way, which should take around five hours in total (280 kilometres). Later visit Mihintale, Aukana Buddha statues.

Anuradhapura City Tour
Stop At Anuradhapura, and Visit the temples, museums, Dagobas, forts, stupas and many other ancient monuments (UNESCO world heritage site). Your hop-on hop-off Anuradhapura city tour starts after the lunch break and it lasts 3-4 hours.

Anuradhapura with the recent excavations, the history goes back to the 8th C.BC. Or 2800 BP. However, legends take history more than 3000-5000 years. (Ramayana is one of them) at that time there were 04 tribes living in Sri Lanka. Kingdom lasted one thousand and five hundred years from 380BC. This city is home to many of the earliest and grandest monuments of Sri Lanka. A popular destination for the Sinhalese Buddhist pilgrimage because of its many ancient Buddhist monuments.

Anuradhapura has been made the royal capital by king Pandukabhaya in 380 BC. It remained the residence and royal capital for 119 successive Singhalese kings till the year 1000 AD when it was abandoned and the capital moved to Polonnaruwa. You will see some of the most famous as well as the tallest dagoba of Sri Lanka, remains from palaces, temples, monasteries, ceremonial baths and the temple of the holy Bo tree. This tree was grown from a Sapling of the very tree under which more than 2500 years ago the Buddha found enlightenment. You will visit all these places on our hop-on hop-off Anuradhapura City Tour.

• Ruwanwelisaya-It is a “stupa” that is built by King Dutugamunu and is one of the biggest completed ones to date.
• Thuparamaya-It is the oldest ‘dagoba’ in Sri Lanka, and possibly the oldest visible one in the world.
• Lovamahapaya-The significance of this building is that the roof was once covered in bronze tiles.
• Abhayagiri-It is one of the biggest viharas in Anuradhapura. It was a monastery of 5000 monks.
• Jethavanaramaya-It is a sacred world heritage site and accommodated some 3000 monks at the time. It is also quite similar to Abhayagiri.
• Mirisavetiya-This stupa was built by King Dutugamunu after defeating King Elara.
• Lankaramaya-This is also built by a king called King Valagamba in the Anuradhapura Kingdom times and is one of the eight sacred places in the city.

Aukana Buddha Statue
The Avukana statue is considered to be one of the best examples of a standing statue of the Buddha from ancient Sri Lanka. The Avukana statue is a standing statue of the Buddha near Kekirawa in North Central Sri Lanka. The statue, which has a height of more than 46 feet (14 m), was carved out of a large granite rock face during the 5th century. It depicts a variation of the Abhaya mudra, and the closely worn robe is elaborately carved. Constructed during the reign of Dhatusena, it may have been made as a result of a competition between a master and a pupil. The Avukana statue is one of the best examples of a standing statue built in Sri Lanka. It is now a popular tourist attraction.

Mihintale Ancient Temple
Mihintale is a mountain peak near Anuradhapura. It is one of the oldest religious sites in the world dating back to the 2nd century BC. King Devanampiyatissa built it. Temple is now a pilgrimage site and the site of many important religious monuments and abandoned structures such as an Ayurveda hospital.

Heinz E Müller-Dietz (Historia Hospitalium 1975) describes the hospital of Mihintale as being perhaps the oldest in the world.

According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicle the Culavamsa the site was selected by King Kasyapa (477 – 495 CE) for his new capital. He built his palace on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colourful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock, he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The name of this place is derived from this structure —Sīhāgiri, the Lion Rock. The capital and the royal palace were abandoned after the king's death. It was used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century.

Polonnaruwa (3 hours)
Polonnaruwa is the second most historical city in Sri Lanka. It was made the capital of Sri Lanka after Anuradhapura.

Sri Lanka is located on the East-West sea route and is visited by traders in order to exchange their goods with the local traders. Even though Colombo was a well-known city among the ancient traders 2,000 years ago, the capital city of the country had been Anuradhapura. There was an Arabian settlement in the city of Colombo at the mouth of the Kelani River. Arab traders were exporting goods from the port of Colombo. Goods such as Cinnamon, ivory, gems, and elephants were exported by the king of Kotte with the help of Arabs. With the beginning of the British colonial period, Colombo city received a prominent place as the capital of Ceylon. Colombo was the capital of the island from 1815 to 1978 until the administrative capital was moved to Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte.

This had been a well-known Racecourse during the British colonial period in the country. This race course which is located bordering the Indian Ocean had to be abandoned later on due to the Sea crabs, which are making holes in the track. Afterwards, it was developed as a promenade for the city dwellers and named Galle to face green. Today Galle face green contains an open theatre, and spacious open space for picnics, sports and walking.

Gangarama temple
It is considered to be one of the most sacred places in the country. Temple is one of the three places that Buddha visited in the 6th century B.C. well known Kelaniya dagoba is located within the border of the temple.

This temple holds a reputation for its attractive wall, which is considered to be the best painting of the Modern Era.

Viharamahadevi park
Viharamahadevi is located in Colombo 7 or Cinnamon gardens. It is the largest and most popular park in the city.

  1. Mathew:

    We had a very enjoyable Sri Lanka tour (5 days tour) with deva! He was an excellent driver (not too fast!) and was very insightful about all the different places we went to visit, as well as any general questions we had about Sri Lanka, it’s history and culture. Would definitely recommend deva.

  2. Raine:

    Roshan was a great guide and was very knowledgeable about the areas we saw during out Sri Lanka trip. He knows lots of history, culture, religions, wildlife of Sri Lanka. He was very patient and didn’t rush any part of our tour, and he is very pleasant to deal with. We would recommend Roshan to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, friendly guide!

  3. Rodney:

    We had a really great Sri Lanka tour with Deva. It was a short trip but very comprehensive. Includes many cultural and historical places and as well as wildlife parks. . Deva is an absolutely attentive and good driver and guide! But that’s only a minor matter, because although I’m not an native english speaker, I was able to talk to him very well. Not only did he show and explain the different places to me, but we talked about politics, society, religion and sports during the whole drive. It was very interesting to hear his view of Sri Lanka. Beside the main attractions we tasted some Sri Lankan food and visited two further tempels. I can only recommend him.

  4. Pim:

    We hebben echt genoten van de tour in Sri Lanka. Ik ben een aantal keer in Sri Lanka geweest, maar dankzij Jaya ontdekte ik meer over Sri Lankaanse cultuur, natuur en religie. Veel nieuwe details geleerd over de geschiedenis en het leven van Sri Lanka. Jaya is een geweldige verhalenverteller en houdt de tour van begin tot eind spannend.

    This was our first trip with Seerendipity and we stopped for few sightseeing on our way to the Maldives. As with my first one , the itinerary was packed with places to visit and opportunities to mix with local people including participation in religious services where appropriate. I feel that Seerendipity as a local agent are very much aware of the importance of the environment and culture of their trip and work hard and sensitively to get the balance just right. Well done !

  42. Lorraine:

    A fast paced trip with opportunity to see some amazing highlights of the cultural triangle. Definite highlight was Kandy, and it was a lovely way to end the trip having a couple of free days at the beach. Thanks Viraj for being a great tour leader 🙂

  43. Friedrich:

    The first hotel was OK but service was not that much good and food also not up to the standard. And it was raining too.

  44. Rilwan:

    Good trip

  45. Ella:

    An absolute pearler of a trip, definitely recommend to others who don’t want a big group and want to chill with people their own age whilst seeing all the banger sites in SL.

    Hectic trip lot of travelling during the 6 days

    Very nice trip with a nice blend of culture, nature and history. Most interestingly it is private. A nice comfortable vehicle, good hotels, excellent food. Everything well organized, good informative guide.

    Nice tour

    Seriously people you have to start visiting Sri Lanka again. So much history and such a beautiful and fun place to visit. The people are wonderful and we never once felt unsafe or uneasy about what we were doing.

    First time with Seerendipity and had a great time. Great tour leader and a mix of inclusions, activities, and experiences hard to find elsewhere. Loved Sri Lanka, thank you to Seerendipity and all the wonderful people we met.
