  • The temple is situated just off the main road, but our TukTuk driver has him once ask also found. The temple is beautifully situated surrounded by nature and we had to watch, which is crossed by the trees time of a large Monkey family. At the moment, the temple is apparently restored, because you can see mounted scaffolding. We found no person there and can visit unfortunately only from the outside.

  • Lost in the middle of the countryside, difficult of access, 25 minutes to find the monk to us open... one hesitates to leave, satisfied to see the stale of the buildings there is not much to see here... yet when we see happen casually this old monk, followed by his cats and his dogs, an old hand wrench, and it opened gently door his monastery where some old light bulbs to illuminate vaguely places... are beginning to understand the authenticity that gives the place its charm. In reality these frescoes are simply among the finest we have seen in Sri Lanka, the best preserved and most diverse. The history of these paintings is very well explained by the perfectly English monk, whatsoever on episodes/Buddhist beliefs that the presence of the monarchy English in some frescoes... and visit this place, only with him, which is a stoicism and unflappable calm, makes things even more beautiful... one has the impression to be cut off from the world for a few tens of minutes... and it feels good! In my opinion, without of course match Polonnaruwa or Sigiriya, it is unquestionably a representative site of sri Lankan art that is really worth trying.
