  • This is a old Hindu temple. The carvings are excellent. A good temple to visit as part of the culture tour.  more »
  • Small shrine near the Temple of Lankatilake, we went there to conclude the tour of the 3 temples. I was struck by the wooden colonnade, beautiful and preserved very well. Very simple, if you have little time in my opinion is not fundamental, better to visit Gadaladenyia or Lankatilake. Admission 300 rupees (1.5 euros) as for the other two.

  • A sacred place for Hindu pilgrims. Some beautiful wood carvings crafted by ancient artists can be seen here. The carvings consist of complex patterns showing the skill and effort of the crafter. Parking spaces are available nearby.
  • The most interesting fact is the roof structure that totally made out of wood without a single nail an engineering marvel at that era
