Kande Viharaya, Aluthgama

Approximately 17 minutes from Villa 700

Believed to be the tallest statue of Lord Gautama Buddha in a cross legged sitting position, this majestic statue is the first thing you see when you visit the Kande Viharaya located a mere 15 minutes away from Villa 700.

Quiet rhythmic religious chants, the pleasing aroma of scented incense sticks wafting by and the overall calm environment within the walls of the temple offer a soothing experience to those who visit. This temple is considered one of Sri Lanka’s most sacred sites and was originally discovered in 1737.

A 300 year old Bodhi Tree, a chamber that houses a sacred Buddhist relic and a number of other significant sacred sites can be found within the temple’s boundaries.
