This is a beautiful historical temple, without all the crowds of The Temple of the Tooth. It is situated on a high rock, and has marvellous views of the surrounding countryside. The temple contains a Hindu and a Buddhist Shrine, and has lovely old paintings. It also has one of the most magical Peraheras (Buddhist Festival) in the area if you happen to come in September. And you are unlikely to see another tourist!
