  • The climb up the steps to the temple offers some wonderful views including a panorama of Lion Rock and Pidurangala Rock. It is steep in places, so take some water with you; there's nowhere to buy any ...  more »
  • Quite a climb to the top but have to say it is well worth it. Temple is amazingly maintained. The views from the top are breathtaking.  more »

  • If your traveling through Sri Lanka, visiting the cave temples should be on your list of things to see! The Golden Temple is located in the center of the country, an easy day trip from Kandy. It's the largest and best-preserved cave temple in Sri Lanka and has beautiful carvings and fresco of the Lord Buddha all around. It's an easy walk to the top and once inside you will find yourself amazed by the history and beauty.
  • Oh my goodness this is a definite must to see whilst in Sri Lanka. It was a bit of a shock once we got there that we had to climb up about 600 steps to get to the caves but it was certainly worth it as the temples had been carved out of the rock. Once at the top the views are stunning and if you like Buddha's there are plenty to entertain you inside the caves.
