Sri Lanka

UNESCO World Heritage Sites are found in very few places, and there are only a few that have as many (8 in all). Legendary temples that hide in caves or perch on top of high mountains show Sri Lanka's more than 2000-year history. From Galle to Trincomalee, colonial strongholds can be found all the way across the country.
