  • Maha Vishnu Devalaya is one of the three devales are inside the complex of the Temple of the tooth of Buddha (in total there are four Devales of the Kingdom of Kandy) and therefore you can visit when you go to see the Sri Dalada Maligawa. It is the furthest of the three. It should take into account that the complex where is located the Maha Vishnu Devalaya, is one of the strictest in terms of clothing and therefore must carry the appropriate clothing to avoid problems with access. We had to buy several large scarves to enter completely covered (even with a very puff jacket, with large holes, prevent you entry). To visit Maha Vishnu Devalaya should pay 1000 rupees per person more gratuity or what they charge you for letting the shoes. This ticket allows you to visit all the buildings in the complex of the temple, the Sri Dalada Maligawa (the Temple of the tooth of Buddha) and everyone else. This Devale Vishnu, Sri Lanka guardian, is not as old as the Natha Devale, but it is worth visiting to see the beautiful carved staircase which gives access to the building and the Hall of drums. Greetings to all travelers

  • Perhaps after visiting the Buddha statues and huge temples, strong impressions of Maha Vishnu Devalaya will not, but it is within the city limits, which means to go and watch exactly worth it! very noisy and in the courtyard of the temple and quietly running monkey (me they why scared).
