Asked what’s the most attractive destination in Sri Lanka’s Western Province, we do not hesitate to recommend a visit of Pilikuththuwa. The reason is the highly attractive blend of ancient cave temples in an undisturbed living forest monastery in an enchanting natural setting. Pilikuththuwa is easy to reach from Colombo or Negombo or Pinnawela, but almost unknown to foreign travellers, although it’s a quite large heritage site with lots of fascinating places such as jungle paths, vantage points, caves with historical inscriptions, Kandyan sculptures and paintings, stupas, monks’ cells, Hindu shrines, wooden bridge, boulder garden etc.
