Visit Wood Carving Center
Thanks to the abundance of timber in Sri Lanka, traditional architecture was made of wood, and this led to a strong heritage of woodcarving skills. If you visit Kandy, you’ll see amazingly detailed carving in the palaces and temples (such elaborate decoration was forbidden in domestic architecture).Today, wooden sculptures have become a popular craft item with tourists. Statues of Buddha and gods, as well as animals such as elephants, take pride of place. Most are made from hardwoods like ebony, palu, sandalwood, gam-malu, and na.
