Relax on the Beach

Do a city tour in the Evening including Kelaniya and Gangarama temple.

Visit Kelaniya Raja Maha Viharaya, Buddhists believe the temple to have been hallowed during the third and final visit of the Buddha to Sri Lanka, eight years after gaining enlightenment. Its history would thus go back to before 500 BCE.

The Gangaramaya Temple complex and Bikkhu Training Centre is spread around the Beira lake and also across the main road. Its imposing buildings with Buddhist artifacts from all over the world is a must see site in the tourist itinerary. The Simamalakaya or the circular Buddhist shrine erected in the centre of the lake is absolutely beautiful at dusk against the light of the setting sun and also in the night lighted up with jet bulbs. The peaceful, calm atmosphere you experience at this shrine is an absolute surprise amidst the noise of the vehicular traffic on the busy roads.
