  • It is very interesting to walk, to look at the statues. All the way is stairs and playgrounds. Shoes, as in all temples, are asked to remove, and stone paths in the sun are warmed up to unreal temperature, feet are fried. So I recommend at least taking socks with me. It's good that most of the way is still in the shadows. Entry 250 rupees

  • The place is not known and is frequented only by locals. A short path through the rocks and then you will enter a cave where a lying Buddha awaits. You could not photograph, but the "keeper" will consent and then ask you for a donation of 500 or 1000 rupees by issuing you an entrance ticket that does not take us because the site is free. It's a !!! FURTO ABSOLUTELY !!! If you want, leave 50/100 rupees in the iron box, as a donation. DON'T BE FOOLED !!! Ivanromeo.

  • Very attractive Buddhist Viharaya near Kandy. About 30 minutes ride from Kandy city. Parking and general facilities available. Easy climb to the top of the mountain where you can see a fascinating Buddha's statue and a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Along the climbing steps you can enjoy the sculptures depicting iconic events of Buddhist history. Highly recommend to any tourist.
  • Loved this place. A temple with ample details on Buddhist culture and history. The set up is really beautiful and is in contact with nature. Very valuable trees too could be found near each Buddha in each era. Really beautiful and different from most of the temples around.
