This city is mainly famous for its cave temple complex. Dambulla is also known for its pink quartz mountain range called Namal Uyana, which is the largest in the whole of Asia. Namal Uyana also has the largest iron wood forest which is native to Sri Lanka. There were 2700 years old human skeletons found in the Ibbankatuwa Prehistoric burial site near Dhambulla which gives evidence that this area was inhabited by humans long before Buddhism came to Sri Lanka.
