This temple which we were informed by our Best Holiday guide was the best in Colombo , I thought it looked and appeared more like a 2nd hand shop than a temple.

Fantastic to visit at dusk, beware and carry a bag to put your sandals in so they don't get taken! A wonderful magical temple.

when I reached there in the evening, the deity was taken out for a ceremonial procession inside the temple...this was excellent...the playing of Nadaswaram (long flute) accompanied with Thavil (percusion instrument) was amazing & was treat to ears !!!
