The patronage extended by His Excellency the President Mahinda Rajapaksha, the President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is indeed a great source of strength and encouragement.

On the day of the inauguration, His Excellency the President mentioned in his speech that, "We live in a world of strife, and that the words of the Buddha would undoubtedly illuminate the world with peace. Towards this end, we should offer the gift of Dhamma, expounded by the Buddha, to all mankind.

Man is faced with unrest and conflict in the world today. Looking for solutions and peace of mind, man will turn to the four noble truths and would walk the path of the Buddha Dhamma to eliminate suffering and unsatisfactoriness."

This is a beautiful temple, and also is the headquarters of the TV channel, the Buddhist. When we were there devotees were finishing up their offerings and getting ready to listen to the dhamma sermon, which was going to be filmed for the Buddhist channel. Donations can be made at the office and a Buddhist devotee, who was at the office told me that she was very impressed by the way they used the money to help many in need. I did not independently verify this story, but she seemed convinced.

I enjoyed wondering around the temple, which had many Buddha statues, a serene reclining Buddha and a lush Bo-tree. I also got a chance to see the Buddhist channel on a previous occasion, which was quite interesting with Sinhala & some English programs.

A Well maintained Buddhist Temple in the capital of Sri-Lanka, which is Colombo, It is also the head Quarters of the first "Buddhist Chanel" in Sri-Lanka, which does a tremendous service to Buddhists in Sri-Lanka & all over the world.
A must see if you are a Buddhist.
Daily Buddhist rituals take place at specific times, & on Poya days special programs take place throughout the day.

There are plenty of other temples which are decent. A lot change during every year whereby lot of breaking and constructions take place using innocent ppls donations which is unacceptable. There is another adjoining temple called Vipassana meditation centre which is calm and decent.

Sambodhi Viharaya is a very good buddhist Temple to visit. if you visit it around 11 am you can see the mid day offerings to the Buddha and resident Monks.
You can also visit it around 5.30 or 6 pm and observe the Evening offerings by Monks and laymen.

If you are in Colombo this is an attraction you must not miss as it is an amazing Buddhist stupa supported by arches over the road. I don't think i have ever seen such an impressive pagoda anywhere in the world.

This temple is very modern and located in an upmarket residential area in the centre of Colombo. There are a number of more interesting Buddhist temples in Colombo. Not one for the tourist trail.

This temple is in a very rich part of Sri Lanka and attracts wealthy devotees. Photography seemed to be prohibited and I found the staff rather arrogant in telling me what I should and shouldn't do. I have been in Sri Lanka a month and never had this attitude elsewhere. Perhaps go elsewhere fora better experience.
