The customs and rituals of Sri Lanka have been handed down from generation to generation. Ancient temple paintings and wall paintings were based on many customs and rituals connected with the day-to-day lives of people in both social and religious spheres. Sri Lankan culture today is a pleasant kaleidoscope of many cultural influences that have  left their indelible impression on the country throughout its 2500 year history. It is a culture that is a rich tapestry that combines the many influences from both the east and west.
