  • If it were not for the huge amount of things to see in this city deserves a visit expressly, it is a quiet place, a yard, with faithful, animals and a statue of Buddha meditating, the route from the road is between trees, Nice.

  • There are many Buddha images in Sri Lanka. What's so special about this is that his face changed depending on you left, right or front on looks (excited, sad and neutral) for the rest no more or less special than other images.

  • Regarded as a masterpiece among the many Lord Buddha statues spreaded through out the island. Standing infront of the statue will bring peace to your mind.
  • Truly magnificent talent of stone carving soo peaceful and calms you down when you look at the statue. As a buddhist i am grateful to the ancient artist for his greatest creation as even many centuries later people like me feel so humble
  • Lord Buddha's Statue created by ancient Stone workers. It's amazing how they did this kind of work for the hard rocks.
  • One of very nice Budda Stupa renaming in Sri Lanka.
