Sri Lankan culture is fascinating. Almost all Sri Lankans have
indulged themselves in some sort of Art, such as Dancing, Music, and
Painting from ages. Buddhism has been the core of Sri Lankan
culture. The connection between society and Buddhism, traditional
Arts, Music and Dance are the significance in Sri Lanka culture.
Ancient customs, rituals, traditions have been handed down from
generation to generation spanning over the 2,500 year old history of
the country and Customs and rituals form a very important part in
the Sri Lankan society from ancient times.
Traditional Dances dates back to as far as 5,000 years, the time
when emperor Ravana was ruling Sri Lanka; and these traditions
passed down from generation to generation.
Culture of Sri Lanka is also diversed just as its beauty. The arts,
traditions and customs do differ from region to region but they all
express the humble, artistic, entertaining, hospitable life style
and aesthetic sense of Sri Lankans.
