“Biggest buddah”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

This place is great to view the whole kandy area. As a tourist you'll be stung 200rs to enter and the views worth it. You can see the whole city from up there. There are better places though that are free

“best place to view kandy city”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

situated very close to Kandy City and this is on a mountain top.... once visit to this huge Buddha Statue will give you once in a lifetime experience.... if you have the strength it'll be great if you can walk all the way up the mountain (few km's)..... once you are there, you can see almost all parts of Kandy City...

“Yup. It's a big Buddha!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

If you have a driver this will probably be one of the stops. It sits on top of a hill and towers over you when you arrive. We made an offering of flowers and enjoyed the view before purchasing a few things from the gift shop that supports the monks. Its nothing spectacular, but its worth a 20 minute stop to enjoy one of Kandy's famous sites.
