Create an itinerary including Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue
You can't miss Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, a huge concrete Buddha statue visible from most spots in Kandy. If you prefer to get close, climb the set of stairs up the hill to the statue's perch, where you can enjoy pleasant views of the city. Try to spot the lake, football stadium, and tea factory from your outlook. Some devotees may leave flowers or light oil lamps to worship at this attraction. Keep in mind you must remove your shoes to approach the statue, so take socks to prevent burning your feet on the concrete. Plan to see Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kandy trip itinerary planning website.

  • The Budda statue is under maintainance, but the place is gorgeous and absolutely worth visiting. Beautiful atmosphere.
