Isipathanaramaya Buddhist Temple is one of the more recently built Buddhist temples in Colombo. The temple was built by D.D. Pedris in 1916 in memory of his fallen son, Henry Pedris, who was falsely accused and executed by the British for inciting racial riots. He was proven innocent later.

As you enter the temple, you will come across a room full of relics and antiques related to Buddhism. A statue of the Hindu God, Lord Ganesha, is also placed at the entrance of the temple. The temple has a good collection of Lord Buddha’s statues. The temple is a very peaceful place and also a reservoir of ancient relics of Buddhism.
