If you're about tired out on Buddhist temples, ruins and the like, it's an interesting divergence to visit a Hindu temple of the likes of the one in Matale! Colorful and different!

On our way to Dambulla we passed by this temple. We did not go inside just walked around outside. The Temple is beautifully detailed. Worth the 10 minute stop.

This is a beautiful, ornate temple with the most elaborate decoration we saw on our trip. Do stop off to see it if it is on your route. Probably not worth an individual specific trip though.

I visited the Temple during the day and was going on a small function and I was not able to visit inside. Looks very interesting place and I took few photos.
