The paper elaborates the legal provisions and organizations for protection of heritage in Sri Lanka. The main issues currently identified in the management of the archaeological heritage in Sri Lanka is under the lack of human resources and lack of consistent financia resources. There are several instances where the protection of religious monuments experienced positive and negative influences backed by political pressures. Sri Lanka could be identified as one of the nations that have used heritage for sustainable development of the country.
