About

The local currency in Sri Lanka is the rupee (RS). This has been the legal tender since 1869, when the country was still named Ceylon. Rupees are also used in India, Pakistan and Nepal, but are slightly different to Lankan rupees (LKR). It is broken down into 100 cents, compared to the Indian rupee, for example, which is made up of 100 paise.
