  • One of the Hindu temple build with granite. It's isolation from the roads and other attractions gives peace of mind and a better ambience to practise spiritual knowledge. Build according to the scriptures makes it more attractive.
  • Peace and Serenity. The architecture is just magnificent. The temple is huge and you could spend a good hour or so !! #natnzin
  • One of the best temple in colombo city, which is build with Blackstone. Gives devin feel & pleasant place for meditation.
  • It's a beautiful Hindu temple! Someone once said that it was built because the Dutch or Portuguese destroyed a Hindu temple to build a church just there, and when after that they had to face much abuse from the locals and so they agreed to build a Hindu Temple. It has a lot of that type of stone work. Supposedly the only Hindu Temple built by the colonisers. Worth a visit!
  • It was my pleasure to have the opportunity to visit this place full of magic. This was the most impressive hindu temple I have ever been to. The Hindu priest were so friendly to us. We stayed there for the Hindu Puja which I really enjoyed and I am still wearing the lines like a bracelet. Thank so much for building this great temple.
