Visiting Sri Lanka in January

Blue whale, Sri LankaJanuary sees Sri Lanka enjoying warm weather and religious celebrations. The marine wildlife becomes active and visible. The season for dolphin watching begins in the northwest city of Kalpitiya, a beautiful peninsular bordered by the Indian Ocean and a lagoon. The southern coasts also yield dolphin and whale sightings, particularly in Mirissa, which continue until around March. 

The Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara Buddhist temple is famous for its paintings and frescoes depicting scenes from Buddhist history. In January, the annual Kelaniya Duruthu Maha Perahera procession in commemoration of Buddha’s visit to Sri Lanka takes place.
