  • Very very attracrable and powerful temple I love evening puja
  • Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple, Tawalantenne, Sri Lanka is one of the best places to visit while traveling from Kandy towards Sita amma temple. Its really a miracle how our builders could manage to bring the giant hanuman statue from down hill and placed on the top of this hill . From the front of this temple you could see wonderful scenery of the mountains and rivers and is really a magnificent view. I really salute the people who are maintaining this soo good and its really an amazing experience. Dont miss this wonderful visit while you are passing through Tawalantenne.
  • A holy place, must visit by Hindus. A newly built temple with picturesque view. Managed by Chinmaya mission.
