Sri Lanka Location Map

Sri Lanka is an island located in southern Asia in the Indian Ocean. It’s situated southeast of India, across from the Palk Strait and Gulf of Mannar.

The geological story of Sri Lanka is interesting. It was once connected to India as recently as 1480. But over time, the land bridge eroded away, forming the island of Sri Lanka we see today.

The terrain in Sri Lanka is dominantly low. It has flat and rolling plains. Then in the south-central interior, the region is mountainous. This includes its highest peak, Pidurutalagala at 2,524 meters in height.
