A combination of a Buddhist temple and a museum. it contained many items of religious relevance, including gold, stones, elephant ivory, porcelain, Chinese statues, stamps, watches, cameras, photographs, coins, one taxidermied elephant, stereos, shells, swords, and some other very weird items. I believe many of these items were donations made to the museum. The centre of the temple was its main prayer area. The whole vibe was quite peaceful but also a little eerie. To get a good feel of the place, I'd recommend going at night or in the evening. Location - Sri Jinarathana Rd Entry fee - LKR 400 per person

Awesome place for religious perspective and the collection of ancient things, museum, silence, big statues also the maintained work and clean are perfect. since it's a first time visit I wondered why I missed a place to visit like this so long time.

I was in a tour group viewing this temple. The gold is almost overwhelming. Don't leave Colombo without visiting.
