  • I have been visited this temple several times when we go to katharagama. This place has grown it's statues and really good and calm place.
  • This is a beautiful location. The temple is on top of a beautiful rock mountain. There is ample parking in the area. There is a washroom which you have to pay Rs.10 to enter. I don't think it is worth the price because the place is flooded with water. Most of the people on their way to Katharagama, stop here to have breakfast. The only issue is there is no proper waste disposal method. People post garbage under trees which is worsening the condition. It would be grate if they can install some garbage bins in the area
  • Place with lot of attractive sceneries. Sankapala Raja Maha Viharaya stands on a rocky mountain an there are some evidence to prove that this temple has been blessed by the saintly monks who spent their time in peaceful meditation.
  • Its gave me a best feeling about sri lankan history.this place owner was a comandering chiff pussadewa who served for king dutugemunu. But this images are not that village..these are temple in that village.
  • Historical and valuable place to visit. Specially very clean public toilets.
