  • Came to this temple on tuk-tuk ride from the railway station. At the entrance to the smiling man, asking us where we are. To know that we are from Ukraine spoke about his longstanding travel to Odessa. Snjavshi shoes we began hiking along the tunnels of the temple, accompanied by a guide-male. All the walls were completely in the painting. Gradually rising to the upper tier of the temple, we porovnjalis with the head of a Buddha. Also at the bottom opposite the statues are good places for selfi or simply photo. At the end of a temple man who took money from us for login, not issuing no receipts, no cheque demanded additional money as him to tea. In general the place very much. If you're in the Mathare-definitely worth a visit.

Where to stay in Matara

A couple of hotels stand close to the train station in Matara, as well as some guesthouses located on the side streets of the Fort district. But the greatest diversity of accommodations lies down by the coast. Matara Beach has some hotels and guesthouses right on the waterfront, while Polhena Beach to the west adds sprawling resorts into the mix, as well as homestays, high-rise hotels, and eco-lodges.
