History
2500 years ago, the Aryans from North India emigrated to the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka Island) and established a Sinhalese dynasty. Before and after the 2nd century BC, South Indian and Tamil people migrated and settle on the island of Ceylon. From the 5th century until the 16th century, the Sangha Luowang Guo campaigned constantly between the Tamil kingdom. At first, after the 16th century, the Portuguese and Dutch ruled. In the 18th century, it became a British colony. On February 4, 1948, the nation became independent, and was given the country name of Ceylon. On May 22, 1972, it was renamed the Republic of Sri Lanka. On August 16, 1978, the country changed its name to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. It is still a member of the Commonwealth.

Economic and Cultural Customs
Sri Lanka is an ancient country with 2,000 years of history, as shipping in the northern Indian Ocean shipping must pass through, but it ie s also known as th"Eastern crossroads." Sri Lanka's plantation economy is based mainly on agriculture. The land is fertile and humid, with favorable climatic conditions for tropical fruit, nuts, and a variety of other products. There are three treasures in Sri Lanka: tea, rubber, and coconut, the production of which tops the world. Sri Lankans have sophisticated technology and process production for tea picking. Graphite is the most abundant reserve of precious stones.

Polonnaruwa is an ancient capital of Sri Lanka, an impressive city site with Brahmin Chola architecture. The city's Neijia Er temple has three statues of Buddha sitting, lying, and standing. Sri Lanka considers the town to be the preservation of a "national treasure." The tooth was showcased at the Kandy temple, which should be held annually in the last ten days of August.

Sri Lanka also has rare animal species, including black bears, flying squirrels and a flat nose.
When the island's original inhabitants, the Vedda, and foreigners do business, they have to select and put aside their own goods and never bargain, in what is called the "silent trade."
