  • I recommend visiting this Buddhist site still in activity, with a temple stuck in a granitic chaos (the Wren temple would have been created 2200 years ago), decorated with religious and secular paintings (Buddha, a Christian cross and the coat of arms British blends cheerfully). But the most enjoyable, is the encounter with the monk who is smiling, pleasant, spirited, and who explains (on his cell phone) in a mixture of English, Sinhala and French the history of his temple. Not to be missed, the view from the rock that overlooks the temple: breathtaking, and especially at nightfall (according to the photos).
