This is a Buddhist monastery 10 - 15 Km away from the Tangalle and don't forget to see this 250 years aged place

The temples carved into the rock aren't especially unique, but the old paintings are beautiful. The climb to the very top, however, is well worth it, with the crazy steps carved into the rock. At the top, the monk will give you a blessing for having reached the top, and take you around a path where you can see for miles and miles all around. Amazing view.

The place is nice, the rock monastery is interesting, but be prepared to pay for everything... For entry, for every floor (everywhere stands some money collector), for parking,...
