This is one of the most scared sites in Sri Langka. You have three different religious building within the same site. A lot of tourist and worshippers.

This is second time I've visited here,the last time about 5 or 6 years ago.Its a decent walk from the hotel where I'm staying but worth the trek.There are a view temples with in short reach of each other which makes it easy as you can walk from one to the other.I'm always astounded by the the serene beauty and the imposing elegance of these temples.
Well worth a visit.

Quite peaceful and we spend time in religious activities without much hassle.

Best times to visit is in the morning hours before 10 and after 5 pm due to the heat in the area.

Tissamaharama Stupa is the largest stupa in the Southern region of the country with a height of 156 feet and 550 feet in circumference. Originally built over 2000 years ago it has deteriorated and been renovated many times in its history and now stands proudly in the town as part of a larger complex.

This is an ancient Buddhist temple in the Down-South part of Sri Lanka and a pre-Buddhist educational center. This area is quite lovely and beautiful landscapes through paddy fields. We stayed for two days in this area and did man things, including Yala national park visit. This is more the countryside of Sri Lanka, there are a lot of farmers and simple countryside houses as well. It is entirely worth to visit if you are off the beaten path.
