    In the "window" from the train, accidentally, I spotted. Think of dravidian to faith in Tamil Kovil means temple of the Hindu temple, Hindu temple. Your itinerary is 10 days. Does not intend to visit, but interest was stimulated by its Visual spectacular. Desire and want to see if you can raise the time had still not come true. (Southwest coastline in Colombo and Matera) along the railroad tracks, "in-I" and building of magnificence was saturated with divinity. Impressions from the train window, so the situation is unknown.

    It is the first time we saw a hindu ceremony and were impressed by music, color and fervor. They were celebrating the full moon. As we were the only foreigners we had us a little on the sidelines but the faithful encouraged us to get closer and even share their food.

    When I went, this hard-to-reach, Temple was closed, without any information about the opening hours. But just outside is a sumptuous beauty, even for someone who isn't a fan of hindu culture. It's worth too much to spend there to take some pictures, and contemplate the temple.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
