The Bandaranaike International Conference Building is located in the Beta zone of the National Museum of Sri Lanka in Colombo, the architecture is exquisite and spectacular, and it is one of the landmarks of the city. The building is a project of free assistance to Sri Lanka by China, which was completed in May 1973, and has been in use for more than 30 years, playing an important role in Sri Lanka's social life. Later, the exhibition in memory of Sirimavo Bandaranaike and the Bandaranaike International Study, built with the assistance of China, were completed in January and April 2003, respectively, forming a unified whole with the building and being honored as "the symbol of China and Sri Lanka".


Elephant Orphanage Elephant Orphanage is located in Pinnawela Village, Gekla District, Central Province of Sri Lanka, 85 kilometers away from the capital Colombo. It is a conservation site for elephants and a tourist attraction. Abandoned and illegal jade mining mines can be seen everywhere in Sri Lanka's virgin forests, and often some young elephants fall into these abandoned Wells and "sit dead". In order to accommodate the young elephants rescued from the jade mine and separated from their mothers due to various accidents, the Wildlife Protection Department began to build this unique "elephant orphanage" in the world in 1975.

The ruins of the ancient imperial city were discovered in the 19th century and have been restored to this day. Founded in the 5th century BC, Anuradhapura is considered the capital of Buddhism.
