Not far from the pink mosque, the old and new Indian temples. It's also in a very tumultuous little street, but the dazzling colors and decorations are still recognized at a glance. One is golden and the other is mainly blue.
Although we did not enter inside, from the outside, this is an amazing Hindu temple in central Colombo. The carvings are amazing. This seems to be an ordinary residential area, but then we saw this temple. That's awesome! ! It's a corner of an incredible building. Be sure to make time to visit. We came here by tuk-tuk from Cinnamom Lakeside Hotel, which is only 5 minutes away from the hotel and it is well worth a visit.
The old and new Hindu temple in Colombo is located in the famous Beta Market. It is a typical Hindu temple. At the entrance is a high tower, which is carved with various Hindu gods and is colorful. , Very spectacular.
Sri Lanka is a country that believes in Buddhism, and Hinduism is one of the major sects. Crossing the narrow street, we came to this Hindu temple. The new temple and the old temple are adjacent. We have to take off our shoes to enter the temple. We didn’t understand it. Secondly, it was damaged by the high temperature and heat, but it was on the side of the road. Coconut stalls are more attractive to us, and it is more pleasant to drink coconut milk.
70.2% of Sri Lankan residents believe in Buddhism, 12.6% in Hinduism, and 9.7% in Islam. Temples, pagodas and mosques can be seen everywhere in this country. Hindu temples are basically in this shape: like a seven-level pagoda. There are many statues of gods on top of the tower, colorful. You have to take off your shoes when you enter the temple, and someone at the door will smear a yellow paint on your face, and he will force you to ask for a tip when you come out. The monks in the temple were all topless and looked vicious, like bandits and underworld. They looked scary. Because they didn't understand the taboos of Hinduism, they didn't dare to take photos inside.
