Gangaramaya Temple – 00200, Colombo. ~
Explore one of the most peace-loving philosophies of the world and its relics in this bustling temple complex. From the smallest Buddha statue which is on display with a magnifying glass, to an eclectic array of bejewelled and gilded gifts presented by well-wishers over the years, all of it is housed in this must-visit site. Today, Gangaramaya is the focus of the Navam Perahera on the February Poya (full moon) day each year. It is the centre for the most extravagant Vesak celebrations in Colombo. Amidst all the cultural richness that this place of worship exudes, you might notice the urban structures behind it, and pause for a minute to reflect on how far we’ve come.
