    If you come see elephant chained to trees without being able to move, you're in the right place. The temple is nice, but he turned into a tourist attraction. It's horrible and it feels really bad to see that.

The feeling of the beautiful sacred places zakalil the impression that by limiting the movement of elephants suffer.

    One of the iconic religious place in Sri Lanka. Try to avoid the mid sun as it can get very hot. Please remember to cover your shoulders and knees and remove your shoes to show respect.
