Having seen so many temples this was a change from the norm and we felt it was largely undiscovered by tourists but visited frequently by locals. Its currently being done up and has scaffolding up but is still very impressive, in a really small way, the paintings inside are simply amazing. Not only that but the 2 or 3 out... 更多
The name Gadaladeniya has been derived from meaning bed of rock, and is one of the ancient Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka. The temple has been built in the 14th Century, during the time where King Buvenakabahi IV was ruling the country, with the guidance of Ven. Seelawamsa Dhammakeerthi. The temple has been designed by South Indian architect Ganesvarachari. The... 更多
When i travel to different countries I make sure I visit the local worship temples.This was anexcellent few hours and would recommend it. Bare in mind men have to cover knees and ladies their shoulders as respect.
The Gadaladeniya Raja temple is small, on a dead end street in a neighborhood of brass manufacture, and next to a trash area that collects recycled soda cans. It is not visible from the street. All you can see is sheer rock – the temple is actually situated on a huge rock. Stone steps have been carved into the rock... 更多
This was under construction at the time we went. So, better to check whether the constructions have been finished, before going. The place was pretty much similar to Lankatilaka temple. Booklets about the temple was available to buy. Parking was available near the temple for free. But it was not a proper parking.
Gadaladeniya, Lankatilaka and Embekke Devale Temples comprise the Three-Temples Loop about half hour's drive from Kandy. With transport (car or tuk-tuk) they can all be visited together in ~ 2 hours and are not particularly busy. This temple, Gadaladeniya, is built on a rock and is very interesting and pretty to visit.
Located around 13kilometers away from the kandy town. Beautiful drawings and amazing architecture . If you have enough time in kandy worth visiting this place.
We went to this temple twice, once in the day just to take some photos of the outside. Didn't stick around long so we didn't pay to go in, but that is an option if you have time. The real beauty of this place was at night, we saw a ceremony that our tuk tuk driver took us to. We... 更多
We organised a tuk tuk tour of the temples around Kandy and the war cemetery which took half a day and cost 2000LR including tip - well worth doing rather than paying for an expensive organised tour. The curator at the temple spoke excellent english, explained all about it's history and was produsing some lovely art work. Although the temple... 更多
