Beautiful, 1000-year-old, rock-cut Buddha figures from Buduruwagala are the biggest attraction in the region. The gigantic standing Buddha (15m, the tallest on the island) still bears traces of his original stucco dress, and a long streak of orange indicates that it was once brightly painted. It's surrounded by small carved figures.

Lying in the south east of Sri Lanka just west of Ampara, Gal Oya National Park has evolved naturally, untouched by the hand of man for countless centuries.
