  • This is a Hindu temple in the Buddhist temple complex. A must see old temple. Lots of people both Buddhist and Hindus.

  • Calm environment. Can buy your worship needs from there too since there's a shop by the gate with flowers, fruits (pooja vatti) etc.
  • The Temple is located on the side of and little outside the Royal Palace enclosure which houses the Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic. The temple forms the part of larger complex of Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic. Visitors need not have to pay entrance fee to visit this temple. The temple has its own enclosure. It is an old temple dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu. However, the pilgrims visiting the Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic, first visit this temple as a ritual, displaying a great harmony between the two religions. The temple has been built using locally available material and does not stand out for artistic beauty. Never the less, it is a beautiful temple with a serene atmosphere. A must visit place in Kandy.
