The Incredible Murals and Frescoes Inside the Dambulla Cave Temple

In my previous post, I showed you what’s like inside Dambulla Cave Temple – which I believe is the Sistine Chapel of the Buddhist world. Now, in this post, I’ll show you the colourful and extremely incredible murals and frescoes inside the cave temple.

As you all know, the Golden Temple of Dambulla is Sri Lanka’s most impressive and most-preserved rock temple. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site that would never fail to amaze you.

These murals and frescoes depict the life of the Gautama Buddha. Some of them might look like a wallpaper but I can attest that they aren’t. You also have to remember that these painted works are executed directly on a rough-hewn cave rock. So, there’s no way they’re wallpapers. 😉

Still not convinced? Let these photos speak for themselves.
