Trip Planner: Asia / Sri Lanka / North Western Province / Polgahawela / Siri Gautama Sambuddharaja Maligawa
Siri Gautama Sambuddharaja Maligawa (Grand Temple of The Gautama Buddha) is one of the most beautiful Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka. This magnificent temple was completed in 2012 to honor Gautama Buddha celebrating the 2600th anniversary of his enlightenment. The temple was built through the great meritorious intentions and guidance of the most venerable Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero. The statues, paintings, carvings and all other art works in the temple were made exclusively by highly skilled Sri Lankan artists. As well, thousands of devotees connected to Mahamevnawa monasteries in the country and abroad gave their full financial and volunteer support. By placing the first stone the construction work of the grand temple was started on 6th February 2011 and the construction work was finished completely just in one year and five months. On 2nd July 2012 the temple was offered to Gautama Buddha and opened to the Public in a grand opening ceremony.
