Dambulla Vihara complex has been built on a giant rock comprising a multitude of caves. It is believed that this complex was first developed and used during King Valagamba’s period (1st century BC). The last one had been during the Kandyan King Kirthi Sri Rajasinghe’s time. This edifice considered as the centre of Sri Lankan Buddhist art and sculpture is replete with about 160 Buddha statues, Bodhisatva images and figurines of gods. Murals have been drawn on an area of 20,000 square feet. The murals depict a very stylish form of art developed in the Kandy Period. Dambulla was declared as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1991.
