  • We were a piece of property from the temples, so it was impossible for us to look at him. We recommend that you rather in the morning or in the evening. Lunchtime is really hot, up to 40 degrees in the shade. It comes here. Very nice.

  • There is a beautiful elephant waiting for you. It's a huge Pagoda. What a nice place and what a nice construction.
  • Really nice temple with a humongous sized buddha statue (largest one in Asia!). Can see the buddha welcoming us with his peaceful smile as we start going down the road leading to the temple. Filled with locals and tourists, we can find people offering flowers and fresh cut fruits as offerings. When we went, there were also a couple of priests involved in chants that was joined by others as well. You can easily take a tuktuk to reach this place from nearby beaches/hotels.
  • People are very co-operative. Anyone can enter to this Temple. Most Valuable place in srilanka. As a Traveller this place is very useful.
  • Kande vihara is a temple famous for its Devalaya ( hindu beleif) but not for its Buddhist religious identity. The Vishnu devalaya is famous among people seeking solace from various misfortunes for people seeking good fortune, the temple is more than a hundred years old. the image house is beautiful. there are recent constructions of huge seated Buddha statue, Most of the time you can see an elephant in the temple . it used to carry the casket of relics when them perehara of the temple is held annually.
  • One of the famous Buddhist temples in between Colombo and Galle
