"Giant Buddha" Sri Lanka Things to Do Tip by ak47uk

Sri Lanka Things to Do: 539 reviews and 890 photos


You can see the giant Buddha at the Weherahena Temple on the road from Matara to Tangalla, there is no charge to see the Buddha but you will get hassled outside from children selling flowers and street beggars wanting money. You will also see the driver of your taxi or tuk tuk and people make a donation in the wall on the outside of the temple.
