About Sri Lanka

About Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka trace the origin of the Sinhalese to an exiled North Indian prince, Vijaya, and his retinue, who settled down in the island and established the Sinhalese kingdom in the 6th c.B.C. However, the earliest recorded civilization dates back to 380BC, when Anuradhapura (205km from Colombo) was established as the first capital city. Following the advent of Buddhism in the 3rd century BC, a civilization rich in Indo-Aryan culture took root. It produced the great cities with their “dagabas” which compare, and even exceed in size, the pyramids of Egypt, palaces and pleasure gardens, rich art and architecture and gigantic irrigation works, many of which are still in use today.. With invasions from neighbouring South India, the base of power shifted to Polonnaruwa (101km South East of Anuradhapura) and other cities such as Dambadeniya, Kurunegala, kotte and kandy. In the 16th Century the island had its first recorded encounter with the traders and colonisers of the West, with the arrival of the Portuguese in 1505. What followed was a period of nearly five hundred years during which the island came under the control and influence of the Portuguese, Dutch and British. While the Portuguese and Dutch ruled over the maritime regions for a rough 150 years each, the British established complete control over the island with the fall of the Kandyan Kingdom in 1815. They too ruled for 150 years before the country regained independence in 1948. The impact of many cultures over the centuries, from South Indian to the Moorish and that of the Western colonisers, have resulted in the country’s culture being enriched by rich diversity,... read more
