The most densely populated province in Sri Lanka, Western Province abounds with rich cultural heritage. Attractions in Western Province include serene Buddhist temples built on lake islands, Gothic-style Catholic churches, and numerous darghas. Facing the Laccadive Sea and enjoying a gentle tropical climate, the province offers a number of pristine beaches with yellow sand and palm trees. Nature and wildlife tours offer the opportunity to see rare animals, such as spotted leopards and baby elephants in a nursery, with plenty more wildlife waiting to be discovered. Strategically located and the former home of ancient kingdoms, as well as Portuguese, Dutch, and British occupation, the area's many ancient forts offer another reason to visit Western Province.
