“Must see”
Review of Isurumuniya Temple

Isurumuniya Temple
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Another must see sight in Anuradhapura. This place is world famous for its sculpture of the "Isurumiya Romantic Couple". There're some other stone carvings outside the temple, just above the pond.

A beautiful temple you should absolutely visit whilst exploring the sites of Anuradhapura.
The site is really beautiful and it's lovely to wander around. The small museum on site is interesting.
It costs 200 rupees to enter.
This is one of the places you should absolutely make time to visit.

We went there with our family. First ever in my life I witnessed a bat cave. One of the must see historical place in Sri Lanka.

Famous for `Isurumuniya Lovers' and the temple was built by King Dewanampiyatissa. Has a very rich history of the place and carries a lot of historical values for the Sri Lankans. A place must visit if you visit Anuradhapura.

Not what you would expect. Right now they are "restoring" it but its like a do-it-yourself version and takes away from the fact that this is a world heritage site. It would have been better if they left it as it was.
