Traditional Masks of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a country rich with scenic beauty and it boasts about the country’s rich heritage. So far I’ve shared some historical places to visit during a holiday in Sri Lanka, however other than visiting historical places, you can also involve in exciting activities and watch and learn about Sri Lankan arts and crafts while experiencing the unique culture.
Traditional masks are one such wonderful thing to watch in Sri Lanka. If you visit the southern parts of Sri Lanka, Ambalangoda is popular for traditional masks and its manufacturing.
During our recent Sri Lankan holiday, I had a great chance to capture some Sri Lankan Traditional Masks. We didn’t travel to Ambalangoda or didn’t visit any museum. But, to my surprise, there was a display in the airport duty-free area while we departing the country. (Bandaranaike International Airport)
It was last minute and we were not in the actual mood. We were in our own world thinking of parents and friends over there in Sri Lanka, thinking of another few months in Singapore without seeing them and we were surrounded by feelings of separation.
Do you like these masks? Aren’t they colourful?

beautiful colors. each tells its own story.
They are so colorful and cool! I understand not being in the mood because of missing family and friends and being sentimental. I can hardly make it through most airports without crying because of missing someone!
