Maligawila Buddha Statue

Reviewed By Greg48 - Meriden, Connecticut

Travelling by car, the Driver/guide suggested a stop here. The standing Buddha is impressive in size, and the site is attractive and well maintained.
There seems to be a steady flow of pilgrims stopping, and it is worthwhile making a 30 or 40 minute stop if passing by.

Yudaganawa

Reviewed By SJ49-London - London

This temple is certainly off the beaten track and is overshadowed by an enormous stupa. The paintings inside are exceptional and not be missed. The curator was knowledgeable and helpful. They are taking donations to help preserve the unique collection of buddhist and hindu wall paintings. Not to be missed.

Dematamal Viharaya

Reviewed By 1LifeStand - Colombo

The orangish brown stupa is in the middle of a paddy field, and on a clear day with blue skies, it is a lovely sight to see not to mention the lovely photos one could capture there.
The temple is said to date back to the 3rd century BC. It is supposedly the place where prince Tissa hid from his brother prince Gamini after the battle at Yudaganawa. Tissa knew that his brother will not violate the premises of a temple.

The Bodhisattva statue which is of historical interest, is an archaeological artifact made out of Limestone, this statue was destroyed due to neglect,it has been brought back to its original glory due to the cleverness of Sri-Lankan engineers.
A beautiful structure.
A lot of steps have to be climbed to reach the top, anyway even if you go halfway, you can see this beautiful statue.
A must see for everyone.
This statue is located in a remote area off Buttala.

Chulangani Vehera

Reviewed By DilrukshiH - Colombo, Sri Lanka

A small stupa which is in ruins but well maintained,it is located just before the Yudaganawa large stupa,not very famous but full of history.
This place of worship is located in a very remote area of Sri-Lanka,Buttala.
Unless you are aware of this place ,you will miss it, as it is not very famous.
This place will be of interest to people who like History & Archaeology.
Do visit if you have the time.
