  • it was a part of our trip to visit the tea plantation, so we stopped a short time, it was ok not impressive but nice to see some local devotions in the countryside 
  • Drove here from Unawatuna tuk-tuk ride, the driver very advised to visit this temple. All unusual is that all the frescoes depicting the life of Buddha are located beneath the temple. Excursion in English cost 250 rupees per person, inside you povyazhut white thread on the wrist for good luck and fortune for that, of course, leave remunerated. In General, if you go by, you can take a peek.
