“Beautiful ancient temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

we really liked the temple because it is really authentic and not touristic. Plus you have great view.

“just as incredible as Dambulla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

What an incredible place this is. And it is situated in such a lovely location. I spent over 3 hours here. And great views to go with it. Go early and have the place all to yourself!!!!!! I rented a moped and drove out there.

“MONKEYS AND ROCKS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Second time visiting and it is always a great place to see. The paintings and the walk around the different rooms are fantastic. The view from the top is breathtaking. Be prepared for a bit of a steep walk up the rock but you will be highly rewarded.

“An interesting spiritual side trip from Tangalle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

The temple is a climb up some great stairways and the views are good from some vantage points.
Worth a day trip to break up lounging on nearby beaches and eating great food. It is only about a 20 minute ride from Tangalle, but isnt the best example of a temple in Sri Lanka.
