  • The most beautiful yet bold and iconic temple in Colombo. Exquisite architecture of Granite and almost impossible stone carvings. This temple is closed during the mid day and usually opened in the morning and evening. Conservative clothes (ladies covering shoulders and below knee)
  • An architecturally beautiful temple. Peaceful and calming place.
