Today, Sri Lanka has six cultural sites inscribed on the UNESCO Heritage List, including the Golden Temple of Dambulla (1991), the Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications (1988), and the Sacred City of Kandy (1988). UNESCO has also listed two Sri Lankan natural sites on the World Heritage List: the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka (2010) and the Sinharaja Forest Reserve (1988).
