  • 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 »
