Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple reviews
A nice Hanuman temple opened in 2001. it is handled by the Chinmaya Mission of Sri Lanka. The temple building seemed appealing from the outside. Unfortunately, we couldn't go inside the actual temple.... more »
Nice to visit on the way, not much to do or see around the Mandir (temple). There is a very well stocked book shop which is part of the Chinmaya Mission store. No photography allowed in the Mandir. more »
Situated in a beautiful environment. A very clean place of worship. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking
Nice Temple. Once you sit down and close your eyes, you will feel a peacefulness inside the temple. very vibrant temple. Next to the temple there is a vegetarian restaurant as well. Foods in the restaurant was amazing. Also they have a nice garden and also a very beautiful l river view..
