"Temples and rice paddies" Sri Lanka Off The Beaten Path Tip by Gypsy_Saskia

Sri Lanka Off The Beaten Path: 115 reviews and 154 photos


Though it's in the LP, we didn't see too many tourists on our daytrip to some villages west of Kandy. We took a bus to Embekka and walked through the rice paddies to a few temples. The second one, Lakantilake Temple is on a hill and give a great view. The temple itself is a bit blue-lavenderish, quite pretty. It is special because it's a combined buddhist/hindoeist temple. A friendly monk asked us for 100 Rs to enter (1 $).
