Customs


Customs and rituals have been part and parcel of the Lankan society from ancient times. They have been handed down from generation to generation spanning over the 2,500 year old history of the country. Most of these customs and rituals are connected with the day to day lives of the people in the social and religious spheres. Sri Lanka's classical architecture, sculpture and painting are predominantly Buddhist. Stupas sprinkle the countryside, and there are several extravagantly large Buddha’s sculptures, notably at Aukana and Buduruvagala. Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa have the most impressive archaeological legacy.

Sri Lankans have many customs, but are also very accustomed to foreign cultures and easily relate to foreigners with great smiles where ever you go. Despite being a friendly nation, respect for the Buddhist religion is at a high and anyone is expected to show such respect to the culture and places of worship during their travels around the country.
