Must visit place if your in kandy. Better to take a auto from gampola town. Only drawback was no toilets available. Top of the the tower was breath taking. Better to visit this place evenings or early mornings.

We visited this place January 2018. This is a biodiversity place where you can see all religions in one place and nature scenery. You have to buy a ticket. It was 50 LKR per each.

You can see 360’ view on top of tower. The view is amazing in the morning. If you are fit, take a hike from gate. You also can drive up to hill based on road and vehicle condition.
