One of famous tourist attraction in the capital of Sri Lanka. Calm and quiet place. Shrine has very nice colorful murals and statues. This temple has museum also. You can see smallest Buddha statue, old cars and lots of antiques and statues. Very good place visit with children.
More than a temple. It’s like a museum. You can see lot of things related to history of Sri Lanka and also Buddhism and other cultures. Really appreciate for showcasing them. But good if it can be more organized. While seeing museum stuff you can also worship, meditate or what you think good to do in a temple.
