An important part of the country’s pilgrim trail, set within a quiet jungle that’s home to the native toque macaque (aka toque monkey), Rangiri Cave Temple in Dambulla is the most visited place in Sri Lanka.

Expect troops of monkeys to accompany you on the walk up to the temple, inside which you’ll find a series of five caves containing 150 well-preserved statues of Buddha alongside religious art, sculpted and painted into the rock.
