From the town of Nuwara Eliya to the Jetwing Warwick Garden, the most difficult hotel exploration route to date has been taken. In particular, the winding roads of only a few kilometers long are only the roadbed, completely deviating from the human society, nearly 40 minutes of bumps, and when the logo of Jetwing Warwick Gardens comes into view, in a blink of an eye, a unique one There was no sign of any small stone houses in front of us. The TUTU car stopped. A middle-aged man in a group of people greeted him with both hands, took our luggage, led the way, and entered the door.
I like to use "low-key luxury", "simple but not simple" to describe the hotel style I particularly like, but in front of the hotel, I can't express my favorite in language, it is luxurious, it is not simple, but It is never low-key, and it is never simple. If you really like the quiet life of the world, you can really stand the loneliness of no Wi-Fi network, and want to return to the natural forest, I strongly recommend it, otherwise I will stop the idea of booking here, just that mountain road is enough to torture people. I am used to living fast and rhythm. When I come here, I will find that the 24 hours in the mountains are really long. You can stroll in the afternoon sun, watch the locals pick tea in the hotel's own tea garden, watch the local children play, and the surrounding residents will greet you. The climate in the mountains is also changing rapidly. Maybe a sudden shower will make you whole body. Soaked, but after a hot bath, a little moment, you will find the clouds in the woods beautiful.

The Dambulla Cave Temple is one of the first places in Sri Lanka to be named a World Heritage Site. In fact, I still believe in the eyes of the old guys in the United Nations. It is not that some small favors can be bought, and the country like Sri Lanka cannot come up with a small favor. Therefore, I would like to see wherever the world's cultural heritage is. However, except for one country, as for who is this country, you know.
At the entrance to the temple, the little boy sells lotus flowers to us. In Sri Lanka, the locals will pray for a pure lotus flower when they pray to the temple.
It is said that as early as two thousand years ago, at the end of the first century AD, South India had invaded Anuradhapura, the ancient capital of Ceylon. The king fled to Dambulla in order to escape the invasion of South India. , hide in the grottoes and get shelter from local monks. A few years later, the king regained the throne. In order to be grateful, the cave that had taken refuge in that year was built into a Buddhist temple and donated to local monks. The
Danbula Cave Temple is located on the slope of a huge stone on the back of the Golden Temple. On a 160-meter-long granite level, five caves were manually cut. At first, only Buddha statues were built in three caves. Later, after two kings' expansion, they became the current five. It is said that there are dozens of miles around Dambulla. They used to be the settlement of monks. They are known for their meditation, and the Dambulla Cave Temple is a good place for Sri Lankans to reminisce about the past.
