  • This well kept temple is run by the Sri Chinmaya mission. It is at the top of a hill with a lovely view. There are several pujas per day, a bookstore and a restaurant.  more »
  • Very impressive temple spotlessly neat and clean. This is the first pace where Hanuman visited in Sri Lanka. The temple is on a high elevation so a short climb up.  more »
  • When we visited, unfortunately the temple was closed (2 pm). However, we enjoyed the view there and had lunch at their restaurant which serves very good vegetarian food.  more »

  • Annually I used to visit this place. Got some neat atmosphere to practise spiritual knowledge. The view of the nature is admirable. Every poya days lunch is provided for everyone who is willing to have it there itself. They also have a vegetarian restaurant separately.
  • Beautiful location, huge Hangman.So, much history to this place. Also, has a Chinmaya mission guest house/lodging also. Good vegetarian meal available in temple premises. View from here is awesome.
  • This is modern Temple like any other. Mountains opposite to the temple are called sleeping Lord Hanuman because of there shape or outline. It is a blessing to see.
  • Fantastic views and a serene atmosphere, don't miss the vegetarian lunch at Annapurni restaurant. Must see place on the way to Kandy/Nuwara eliya
  • What a natural place, amazing ❤️
