Kandalama is a small village located near to the busy town of Dambulla. Home to one of Sri Lanka’s most famed hotels, the Heritance Kandalama, it is an ideal base in the Cultural Triangle due to its proximity to the big sites but away from the busy towns. Polonnaruwa is one such site, both a working town and ancient city; it is a must-see in Sri Lanka. Once the capital of Sri Lanka, it still retains much of its ancient buildings including the royal palace and statues of Buddha.
