My country

16 July, 2023

My country is Sri Lanka. It is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and is known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’. We gained independence in 1948. There are several communities. They are the Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim and Burgher communities. It’s a Buddhist country and the main language is Sinhala.

My country is beautiful. It has many important places. Piduruthalagala is the highest mountain and the Mahaweli is the longest river in Sri Lanka.

I love my country very much.
