  • Arriving in a tourist train in such exotic countries are always very interesting to visit local attractions of a religious nature. Just be sure to preview online

  • It is a small well maintained hindu temple. We wanted to visit this temple since we were unable to include kataragama in our itinerary. 
  • 1/5 to draw your attention to a detail and prevention. Nothing against the temple itself. The temple is composed of some Hindu and Buddhist part. We went there during the Vesak Poya. Excellent atmosphere because great Hindu music by a group concert from Jaffna. Until the fine. Then, a monk Buddhist and came looking for us to show us the "traditions of prayers" and we led up to his dressing room. Then, after having recited a mantra, he asks us to make a donation of 1,000 rupees per person by presenting us with a notebook containing the names of all the people who have scammed. We find a similar review on google, so we are not alone (Carine Lombard post, reviews with one star). Go visit this temple, but beware of this handset from Buddhist monks and do not hesitate to refuse the donation or give ten times less than what they charge. The clothes don't make the man!
