What a wonderful piece of art. Unfortunately we could not go inside because it was closed but we certainly enjoyed the wonderful view from the outside.

one of those temples where you also get to see a lot of buddhist statues in a collection....right from a miniature gold one which needs a magnifying glass to be seen to the 100 statues on the steps...its is more like a museum than a temple.has an amalgamation of cultures where the ganesha statue is placed at the entrance and...

I like going to temples and Isipathanaramaya is a big temple where one can sit and contemplate on life. During the holy days it is packed but on a normal day there isnt a big crowd and it is nice to sit and enjoy some peace and quiet. The traffic noise is a bit offputting but nothing too bad.

A very quiet nice temple situated very close to the Isipathana boys school and right in front of the BRC club, Colombo 5. A temple very conveniently accessed and worshiped by the Buddhist community in Colombo.
