  • A less frequented site but to be seen absolutely because the large standing Buddha statue, about a dozen meters high and carved into the rock, is one of the best found in the country and is very old (they say of the fifth century). The surrounding environment, which is verdant, also contributes to the charm of the place.

  • Contrary to some opinions I find that this Boudha in blessing posture is majestic, from the top of its 12 meters and carved in a block of granite in the 5th century it deserves a visit. There is an air of serenity and calm in this place that is conducive to meditation. The site is apparently not frequented by tour operators which allows to explore it in peace. It is a pity, however, that the statue is protected from the elements by a nasty metal roof that gives the impression that the statue is in a shed. It would have been wiser to use noble materials to carry out this protection.

  • 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
