Gleaming white against a clear blue sky, the great expanse of a stupa rises up to meet the soft, feathery clouds, as it has done for over a millennium. You enter a time and space where history has stood still to give you the privilege to step into an ancient world of wonders. Wonders that come alive in a culture that has survived the centuries; heritage that lives on despite the ravages of time. Splendours of Ceylon will take you on an unforgettable journey to the incredible feats of our ancient people. To a sprawling sacred tree – planted in 235 BC, and is still thriving, to the ruins of first Kingdoms where majestic temples and monuments filled the vast cities, the glories of which still remain. To a rock citadel of a ruler on the run, considered to be the 8th wonder of the world and to the nation’s very last kingdom where culture and devout traditions continue unheeded. Then head south, to explore the natural miracles of hot water springs and spouting blowholes and on to the hidden treasures of a private island where you can rest and recall with pleasure all the enchantment you have experienced.
