Sport in Dambulla

The cricket ground, the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium is in Dambulla. The ground has a capacity of 16,800 and has hosted ODIs but yet to host any test matches.

Getting to Dambulla

There are frequent buses from central Dambulla to Colombo (5 hours) and Kandy (2 hours). There is no train station in Dambulla, with the closest station being Habarana (about 23km north), which has a service to Colombo (6 hours).

What to do in Dambulla

Although I didn’t get to see it myself, I’ve heard the Dambulla cave temple is worth a visit. Sigiriya Rock and gardens is also nearby, with a bus taking about 45 minutes from Dambulla, or can be visited from Habarana.
