Sri Lanka and its connection with India at the umbilical cord

Vivek Tulsi

Sri Lanka has a deep and rich Hindu connection that stretches back millennia as this book lays out. Evidence suggests that Hinduism was present in Sri Lanka as early as 2nd century BCE; archaeological finds like Hindu temples dating back over 2,000 years support this. For centuries, Hinduism was a dominant religion in Sri Lanka, and even today, Hindus make up a significant portion of the population. Hinduism is primarily practiced by Sri Lankan Tamils, concentrated in the Northern and Eastern Provinces, who built magnificent Hindu temples, like the Koneswaram temple dedicated to Shiva. These architectural marvels stand as testaments to the rich Hindu heritage. Festivals like Deepavali (Diwali) and Thaipusam are celebrated with great devotion. Many Hindu deities like Shiva, Vishnu, and Murugan are revered in Sri Lanka, by both Hindus and Buddhists. It's a heritage woven into the fabric of the nation's history, culture, and traditions.
