Most remarkable place i have gone through. From polonnaruwa its bit far away. But can go. Near a lake the statue situated. Parking there. Statue is huge and nice.. people can worship. Clean place and specially for mind relaxation its good
It's a big statue and a tiny temple. Located in a remote area so I am not sure if it's worthy but if you are around, you should definitely visit
