Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple Overview

Book Colombo Hotels Book Colombo Holiday Packages

The Gangaramaya Temple is strikingly beautiful, and it is also the most important place of worship for Buddhists in Sri Lanka. It is immaculately designed, with a hint of Chinese, Indian and Thai influence in its architecture. The Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple is quite a sight in itself. It also houses a museum and a library.

A walk along the premises is recommended for all travellers, as it is not just a place of worship but also a centre for learning and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. The monthly Buddhist full moon Poya and the week-long Buddhist festival celebrating the birth of Lord Buddha are two major festivals for Buddhists in Colombo.
