The last day of our tour we started off  by visiting a sacred Buddhist place. It was a temple called Dambula that consisted of 5 caves, which were filled with frescoes and sculptures, each more elaborate than the last.  I was amazed at how they could paint of the roofs an sides of the caves.  Buddha was represented standing, sitting and lying down in many sizes. 

What detail, magnificent. 
This is painted on the uneven roof, it is truly amazing. 
We were driving home and there were a number of cars stopped at the side of the road.  What a marvelous site to mark the end of a super tour of Sri Lanka.
