If you are in Colombo this is an attraction you must not miss as it is an amazing Buddhist stupa supported by arches over the road. I don't think i have ever seen such an impressive pagoda anywhere in the world.

This temple is very modern and located in an upmarket residential area in the centre of Colombo. There are a number of more interesting Buddhist temples in Colombo. Not one for the tourist trail.

There are plenty of other temples which are decent. A lot change during every year whereby lot of breaking and constructions take place using innocent ppls donations which is unacceptable. There is another adjoining temple called Vipassana meditation centre which is calm and decent.

So much devotees and organized charity by temple. A place in Colombo to know Buddhist philosophy. Sadness viharaya within sambodhi is a place to visit. Many pure gold Buddha statues with very valuable artifacts place there.
