Religion is omnipresent in Sri Lanka, and so is ethnicity…
Drambulla mixed temple (hindu architecture Buddhist faith) : this charming temple is located on an artificial island… As you can tell, boots were more appropriate than sandals but since you have to take off your shoes anyhow to visit the temples, there’s not much to be done except wearing easy havaianas….which I ended up purchasing 😉
Kandy is definitely a cultural and religious highlight in my amazing tour. A hybrid of Singalese, Hindu and Muslim Faiths sometimes visible on a single sight. My heart however beats for the Embeke temple with wood carvings worth the trip on their own!
Honni soit qui mal y pense….
Tamil temples are a frequent sight throughput the country
And as mentioned in my first post on Sri Lanka, Christianity is quite visible in some areas such as Negombo, but also in the shape of 17th century churches… Such as the Dutch Reformed Church of Gall and its graves reminding the Double Cathedral of Valetta
