“Amazing at sunset/evening!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This is one of the most underrated historical sights in Sri Lanka. It dates back to ~ 140 BC and it looks just amazing at sunset and then later on under the illumination of lights at night. The stupa is an architectural marvel and is worth visiting late in the day/evening. Anyway I will leave it for you to decide!

“The pinacle of spirituality”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This temples is located only few steps away from the Sri Maha Bodhi temple. A must see if your coming to this area. It is also known as one of the largest stupas in Sri Lanka. The stupa was built with many relics of Gauthama Budha by King Dutu gamunu.
Out of all the Buddhist temples on earth this temple is legendary. This will be the place the last sermon of Budha will be preached at the end of the earth as written in ancient Buddhist scripts.
And as for all the other Buddhist temples in Sri lanka this also prohibits entrance to the premises in footwear, caps and in decent clothes. Be mindful not to wear anything shorter than the knee length or any sleeveless tops.
