“New but traditional anyway.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a great place to visit. Wander round all the different temples, check the art work and so many sculptures. Fantastic. Its a temple and art gallery at the same time. Most of the exterior is quite new but its all put together in a respectful creation that makes it seem like a traditional temple.well worth a visit.

“A Modern Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Ranawana Rajamaha viharaya is a recently renovated modern buddhist temple located at pilimathalawa off the main kandy-colombo highway and close to the Gadaladeniya Temple.

Located on a small hillock, there are many sculptures of stories depicting scenes from buddha's lifetime. The temple also hosts a huge standing buddha(which is currently under construction) on top of the hillock.
