“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Nice monks and a great view of Kandy. The statue of Lord Buddha is one of the most impressive, towering over the small temple. It is a great photo shot if you take from the found level looking back up

“Worth the visit for the view of Kandy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Small entrance fee has to be paid, in the temple is not much to see but has a nice Buddhistic book shop next to the big white statue of the lord Buddha. You can climb the stairs in the back of the statue to have amazing views over Kandy city and the lake. No shoes in the temple.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Well worth a visit to this amazing Buddah statue, with its rather poignant memorial to the Tsunami victims.
