  • A sacred place of Buddhists. Good access road. Visiting in the morning and the evening is recommended due to high temperature in day time(You cannot wear shoes around the pagoda). Anyone can visit who loves history and nature. Wild elephants, deer and peacocks can be seen easily (premises is protected by an electrical fence).
  • Sacred palce of buddhists, very good access road, can see wild elephants also.
  • What a place,.... Nice drive and great place to meditate
  • One of the sacred place in Sri Lanka.Which is situated in Somawathiya National park and is believed this is built in time of King Dutugamunu enshrining the right canine relic of the Tooth of Lord Buddha.
  • Beautiful place and most religious value in that pagoda and temple.....
