Dambulla – is a vast isolated rock mass 500 feet high and a mile around the base. Here is found
the famous Rock Temple dating to the First Century B.C. The caves of Dambulla sheltered King
Walagamba during his 14 years of exile from Anuradhapura. When he regained the throne he
built the most magnificent of Rock Temples to be found in the Island.
In the first Cave is a recumbent image of the Buddha 47ft long cut out of the Rock. There are
images of deities associated with Buddhism all around. The frescoes on the walls and the ceiling
are the oldest here but they are over painted in the Kandy period.
In the Second Cave, the finest and the largest of all, there are 150 life-size statues of the
Buddha in various postures with few statues of Gods and Kings. The ceiling is also covered with
frescoes, which depict great events in the life of the Buddha and landmarks in the history of the
Sinhalese people.
