Rambadagalla Manaragala Samadhi Buddha statue is a statue carved in modern era. A monk was initiated this statue who was got sad and inflenced by the destruction of ancient Bhamien buddha statues in Afghanistan by Taliban Terrorists.

Another calm place located in the Kurunegala District. Location is about 19 km away from Kurunegala city.

Modern day work of art on a grand scale. Lovely atmosphere helped by the resident monks and pilgrims from the south. They appear to be starting a rock sculpted Ganesh as well.

It was a big and a new statue. But for me it is another statue and out of the way from other tourist areas. Nothing special. But not crowded. Little hill to walk not hard.

When my wife and I visited this statue, we were almost the only tourists.
The pictures online show its beauty. Be sure to visit the small temple up a small granite hill opposite the statue. One would never know a temple even exists, which is true in lots of places. The Buddha in the temple and related artwork were among the best we saw on our trip. To find the temple, I literally had to go exploring, as the building is small, and looks empty and in poor repair.

Worlds' Largest Granite Statue of Samadhi (sedantary) Buddha. They said it's illuminating with sun and moon light. But we didn't see as we visited rainy time.

1 hour enough for visit. No need to pay for entering. But have to pay for parking.

We have visited this place many times from its inception. It is a not-to-be-missed place as you could see how it is done. Looking at the effort made with more modern equipment, one would be able to appreciate ancient works of this type done centuries ago with minimum facilities. Truly amazing work spearheaded by the priest with the assistance of people of many faiths.

Rambodagalla Buddha Statue is the largest rock carved seated Buddha statue in Sri Lanka. This statue is located in Monaragala Temple in Kurunegala district.
Creation of this gigantic Buddha Statue was started in 2003 and took a decade to complete by artists from India. The statue is 67 feet high.
Early morning or late evening visit is recommended to avoid the heat.
