“Another masterpiece”
Review of Isurumuniya Temple

Isurumuniya Temple
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Take your socks as this is a hat and shoe free zone. Socks are acceptable and respectful. Fascinated watching the local attendees throwing coins into the rock opening, and then the climb to the top of the rock well worth the crowd and wait.

It a must see in Anuradhapura. Ancient feeling, nice statues and story. Our guide was very well informed and willing to share what he knows about the temple. Entrance fee is 200LKR.

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.
