A little further on a garden the landlord has a chance to see 2 magnificent specimens of elephants. As read in previous reviews the two specimens are unfortunately linked ... honestly I do not know why but comuqnue nice photograph them and see them eating or bathing. From the idea of being quite popular during our visit there was some sort of religious festival, all wore flowers or fruit. Then there is a beautiful blue building and another temple filled with beautiful frescoes with a young monk who, if interested, is kind of a blessing. A beautiful place to visit very popular Sri Lankan pilgrims thought the year. This devale is dedicated to Lord Vishnu who is known as the keeper of Buddhism to Sri Lanka.In this website you can find several religious buildings, a park where on my visit there were also two elphants, a huge Buddha statue, as well. Nice place for meditation, prayer, relaxing.
