A granite rock situated in Rideegama, 23kms from Kurunegala town is being transformed to
The World's Tallest Buddha Statue by skilful stone masons from India. Myth was that ancient stone masons used herbal mixtures to soften the granite, but nothing of a kind and you can see with your own eyes how skilfully they drill, blast and chipping the shapes. Man made granite pond in front of the statue is 7.0 meters deep. The time and money spending on this project is immense but for generations and generations would appreciate this creation like we the current generation value and regard the Awukana Buddha Statue in Kantale, Sri Lanka. This is a must see attraction when you visit Sri Lanka since it's completion is getting closer. The access is easy gradual climb on the granite and half made steps in the making.
