The unassuming town of Matale has a stunning Hindu temple. Close to the main road through town, it has that 'wow factor' to it as it soars toward the heavens. It is dedicated to the goddess Mariamman, the most important female deity in Sri Lankan Hinduism. You can get good photographs from the entrance area. The entry fee is modest but the hours are limited.

This is very spectacular and colorful place. We took great photos. And the people are very friendly and happy to pose for our photos or have photos taken with us. Did not find it dirty as someone else said, they were actually washing the floor when we were visiting.
Was very happy to see this after all the budhist temples. We took great photos.

We visited during the annual Theru festival so we were not admitted to the temple but instead were charged R100 to walk around the grounds and take photos.

While intesting, colourful and to Hindus sacred, I note that no Catholic Church would ever charge to walk around its grounds. This was no donation to the Hindu temple. It was a compulsory entrance fee.

Nice Hindu temple. You leave your shoes with someone who watches over them while you are in the temple. Once inside, it was like being in a big storage hall for various mobile statues in addition to the permanent fixtures. Being non-hindu, we weren't allowed to go into all parts of the temple. But, all in all we didn't feel unwelcome inside. Later in our holiday we visited several more impressive Hindu temples than Sri Muthumariamman. Very glad we had this first experience in Matale.

We stopped at this temple and viewed the outside from the road as it was closed. it looks nice from outside. If you have been to India and seen the temples there then personally I would give this one a miss.

You enter the grounds through a main gate. As soon as the "security guard" notices that you are a tourist, he rushes towards you and informs that there is a fee just for walking around the temple. The people in our group who are not photographers or interested, walked back to the vehicle. The others paid the fee and walked around the perimeter taking pictures and admiring all the details.
