Dambulla, known primarily for the amazing cave temples dating back to the first century B.C., and they are incredible. I’ve seen dozens of caves with Buddha images and statues before, but never anything this fantastic.
Heading up the mountain to the Dambulla Caves.
The third cave is by far the largest and most decorated and impressive.
Paintings cover most of the walls and ceiling of the caves.
Buddha statues are everywhere.

In Sri Lanka, you’re not allowed to take a picture with your back to the Buddha.
