“Oldest and Largest Hindu Temple in Colombo”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Easily reachable, just behind the Fort Railway Station, you'll find the Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil, or simply the "Hindu Temple". This is the oldest and largest hindu temple in Colombo and is dedicated to the Gods Shiva and Ganesh. A visit is a must and is included in most Colombo tours. Its monumental towers, very elaborated, with hundreds of colorful ornaments will delight your eyes and memories. Enjoy!
