  • I have seen Hindu temples like this in Singapore and Malaysia that are so colorful. This is the most ancient and largest Hindu temple here and the monumental tower is very ornate with amazing carvings...  more »
  • It has a very nice color. It is dedicated to the God Shiva and God Ganesh. I can't tell what it's like inside. We went in the afternoon, I was sick of so much barefoot and I stayed out.

  • his is an absolutely fascinating Temple which is the oldest and best known Hindu Temple in Colombo. It is dedicated to the Gods Shiva and Ganesh and is incredibly elaborate in its decoration. You will find hundreds of brightly colored ornaments and decorative features and gain a true sense of the 'feeling' and nature of this important religion. Definitely worth a visit for worship and finding out more about Hinduism in Sri lanka.
  • Nothing super exciting if you have been in India. It's nevertheless a good example and one of the few in Colombo. Quite bad conservation state
