Serendib, Ceylon: The Indian Ocean's Pearl

These are the lovely names that the British and Arabs gave Sri Lanka in the past. Sri Lanka has a long history of rulers, changing degrees of colonial influence, modernising influences, wealth, and income, all of which have contributed to the development of a very diversified culture. In Sri Lanka, religion is a significant feature of daily life and dominates this aspect of variety. The majority of people in Sri Lanka are Buddhist Sinhalese, making up over 75% of the population; the remainder are Tamils, Muslims, Christians, and Malays. The most noticeable aspects of Sri Lanka's cultural landscape are the colourful rites performed at Buddhist and Hindu temples, mosques, and churches. 

The nation is fortunate to have a vast variety of landscapes in addition to historical and cultural diversity. A vacation to Sri Lanka would be the best way to explore a variety of sights, from lush foliage to tropical beaches to mountainous terrains and abundant animals! Sri Lanka's  cultural heritage is frequently depicted in sculptures, architecture, works of art, and even cuisine. Some claim that Sri Lanka has a more traditional culture, one that is clearly affected by the many religions practised there, including buddhism, hinduism, islam, etc. One reason Sri Lankans have such a strong feeling of appreciation for the basic things in life, like nature, is that their way of life is very straightforward and full of humility and contentment.

The culture's impact from India and Europe is one of its key characteristics. Since Sri Lankan rulers typically wed Indian princesses, they assimilated Indian culture while still maintaining the distinctive Sri Lankan identity. The Dutch, Portuguese, and then British invaded, which led to the spread of European influence. Sri Lankans are among the friendliest people in the world since hospitality is another important aspect of their culture.
