Sri Lanka Temples

Temples in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka prides countless spectacular religious venues and holidays for Muslims, Buddhists, Hindu and Christians, what has led to a large amount of public holidays which the Sri Lankans fully enjoy.

Also the amount of working hours has been kept fairly low in most places with many shops closing at 6 pm, just to allow enough time for visiting temples and mosques before dark.
