Dhowa Rock Temple, Badulla

(35+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
The highlight of Dhowa Rock Temple is a very tall statue of the Buddha, carved in the rock face and apparently unfinished. The cave shrine features Buddhist murals. Locals claim a secret tunnel stretches from the temple to Kandy, located almost 120 km (75 mi) away.
