Create an itinerary including Angurukaramulla Temple
Admire the 6 m (19.5 ft) tall Buddha statue at Angurukaramulla Temple, before entering to see colorful paintings and sculptures. At the very entrance, you'll see a sculpture of dragon, which protects the temple from evil spirits. Step inside and you'll find yourself surrounded by ancient murals, paintings, and colorfully adorned deities, especially on the ceiling of the shrine room. The temple tells the stories of the queens and kings who used to rule the country, as well as depicting Buddha’s journey to enlightenment. Trees surround the temple, and in the center you can see a pond full of turtles. A monk will take you on a free tour around the temple, although you might be expected to make a small donation and sign the guest book.
