“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

It is really worth climbing up 700 steps to see all the temples,they are simply stunning and quite well preserved, the frescos are very interesting and the huge statues of Buddha so impressive..In the third temple you can see the old chest where Mahavamsa was discovered.Go up to the fourth terrace as well, the view is magnificient

A great, fantastic rock temple. Peaceful and no more tourists. Excellent views so take your camera. Well worth a visit with a good English speaking guide.

“Most interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

A lot of steps, and not much at the top when you get there, but well worth doing. Take the time to go into the various rooms half way up. Marvellous statuary

“Amazing Rock temples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Incredibly well preserved rock temples - a bit of a climb but worth it. Also worth paying for a guide - check language good enough first!
