Traditional Painting in Sri Lanka dates back to the 5th century BC.
The earliest paintings in Sri Lanka’s history, featuring high aesthetic and creative skill are found in the Sigiriya rock fortress. Many of the later paintings found in the Polonnaruwa and other eras are associated with temples and other places of religious significance. Temples located in the central and southern regions of Sri Lanka feature many paintings on various themes related to Buddhism displaying a distinct and uniform style of painting.
