Temple and Cave Walk
The Pillikuttuwa Rajamaha Viharaya is a monastic meditation complex with some 99 caves spread over 200 acres. The temple is steeped in Sri Lankan Buddhist tradition and was built 2400 years ago. The caves were constructed with a unique drip ledge to protect the meditating monks from any rain, the ceiling of the rock caves is decorated with typical Kandyan art decorations and elaborate lotus flowers, and the reclining and sitting statues date back to the Polonnaruwa period. The walk takes about an hour and is an interesting climb through the jungle up through the caves. You will be treated to stunning panoramic views across the countryside at the top.
