The death of King Rajasinghe of Sitawaka
Over centuries, Buddhist shrines have been very much part and parcel of our culture and heritage. The artistic creations related to these shrines bear testimony to a great civilisation that existed since the introduction of Buddhism in the 3rd Century BC. They are not mere places of Buddhist worship but marvels of construction.
Amazing Thailand
We landed in the ‘Suwarnabhumi’ Airport, Thailand. The airport was huge! Much bigger than the Katunayake Airport. I was so excited. We were picked up by the ‘First Hotel’ cab service. On the way, I saw how neat, clean and wide the roads are. We were travelling at great speed, because we mostly travelled on highways.On the sides of the highway, pink papery flowers named ‘Bougainvillea’ are grown. It is a very pretty sight.
