Sri Lanka: Dambulla Cave Temple

Received this beautiful multi-view card from Sri Lanka some time ago. Dambulla Cave Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also known as "The Golden Temple of Dambulla"!
 You can see some interesting details about the Dambulla Cave Complex by visiting the link here.

Three gorgeous stamps have been used on the postcard. Sri Lanka has improved it's stamp designs in the last few years a lot. I really like the scouting stamp at the right-most position. It's extremely proportionate and lovely design.
  • The right most stamp was issued in 2016 at the eve of "World and Sri Lanka Cub Scouts Centenary 1916-2016" and was of 10 Sri Lankan Rupees denomination.

  • The stamp in the center is a part of a set of 10 stamps issued on Solar System in 2014 and shows the Sun. Denomination is 7 Sri Lankan Rupees. It was the cheapest stamp in the set.
  • The Greater Flamingos stamp on the left side is a part of 4-stamp set issued by Sri Lanka on World Wetland Day and the birds are shown in Chundikulam National Park.
