  • Admission is 300 rupees. Let's no deposit! Change "Guide" shamelessly puts himself in the Pocket and try to sell acrylic prostenkie pictures of our own authorship as much for $20. On the territory of a cute Lotus pond. Beautiful mural somewhere updated, in a small mortar.

  • One of the most beautiful temples in Kandy region. Small, fine and costs only 300 rupees. Were indeed alone here and enjoyed the facility and the prospect of even more beautiful. Arrival with the Tuktuk cost 800 rupees.

  • Place in Kandy, everything is gorgeous as well outside than inside. The eyes are not large enough for all to see.
