    Maha Saman Dewalaya is located near the Rathnapura - Panadura road. It is nice place and have the historical value. The annual Saman Dewalaya perahara is great. If you are looking to visit Rathnapura, I recommend you to visit this out first.

    The museum has a lot of gems on display however the displays are very tired and could do with a good overhaul to tidy it up. The good points of this place are that entry is free and also that the people there are very knowledgable whilst not being pushy at all.

    It's a Buddhist temple located in Rathnapura. Has to climb for about 20min to get in to temple. Worth place to go.

    The day we found about this rentacarlk out till the day we finished our tour.. their service was awesome.

    We kept changing out tour plans yet they listened to us patiently and gave us quotation. Their price are reasonable.

    Our chauffeur Mr. Mallinga, was very hospitable. He guided us, drove us, and took us to very nice places. He understood our requirements and helped us and our trip wouldn't have been completed successfully without him. Thanks Mallinga.

    Overall Rentacarlk is one dependable guide at Srilanka.
