  • Huge Buddha statue is the highlight of this place. And a typical Buddhist environment. So many expatriates visiting, as far as I know not much history in this location. But good place for a stop if you are visiting the country. Better if you can wear modest clothing (for both gender) if not there are clothes you can take and wear SriLankan style sarong which nice to try if u r a foreigner.
  • nice temple on a small hill. it has a large buddha statue and so many things to see. there is a elephant in the temple as well.
  • Buddhist Shrine with lively environment. Very popular with pilgrims. Consists a Hindu Kovil Inside.
  • Very large Buddha statue with Vishnu dewalaya. Ample parking space
  • When we arrive to kande viharaya,the floor was very warm
