Habarana, located in the heart of Sri Lanka, isn’t what you’d call a tourist town or attraction. Yet it serves as a strategic junction for exploring the renowned Cultural Triangle, which includes the historic sites of Sigiriya, Dambulla, Anuradhapura, and Polonnaruwa. These sites are a testament to the island’s rich history, with Sigiriya known for its dramatic rock fortress and frescoes, Dambulla for its cave temples, Anuradhapura for its ancient city and stupas, and Polonnaruwa for its well-preserved ruins and sculptures. Habarana’s proximity to Minneriya National Park is also significant, offering visitors the chance to witness the famous elephant gathering during the dry season, a spectacular wildlife event.

Habarana’s numerous resorts provide ample amenities, set amidst expansive landscapes that offer a serene retreat after a day of exploration. The large pools and spacious grounds of these resorts offer a place to relax and reflect on the day’s adventures in this central hub of Sri Lankan heritage and wildlife.
