    Beautiful temple. You can get there by bus from Kalutara/Bentota/Beruvelly etc. The statue is really impressive, it is possible to get "inside the Buddha," there's something to look at. On the rynochke of souvenirs in front of the stairs I advise you not to buy anything-prices inflated just immodestly strongly.

    Beautiful temple inside and out. Buddha is amazing and can be seen from quite a distance as it's 45 meters high.  more »

    This temple is very beautiful and enriched with many historical stories... always crowded and after 7.00pm on weekdays is less crowded and this is the best time to visit it... At this time it is very silent and calm... Good place to do Meditate in front of the the large biddha statue at this time...

    With the stories behind, “Kande Viharaya” Buddhist temple is scared place among locals. You can see a gigantic statue, where Buddha stand-in “Bhoomisparsha Mudra”. If you visit this temple, I would say early morning is the best time. Then you can reach the religious and nature of this archeologically protected mountain. I have been to this temple so many times, in the morning and I know the true feeling of it.

    Many times being there. Very relaxing time while seeing buddha. Beautiful Environment, surrounding. There are arts explaining Lord Buddhas life Events and Jaathaka katha in the Cave. And Bo tree, Stuupa and Meusium will enhance our mind more and more attractive here.
