What travelers say:

Buduruwagala in Sinhalese means budda image stone. Buduruwagala dates back to the beginning of the tenth century. It was hidden in the forest like the Lion Rock in Sigiriya until it was discovered by local residents hundreds of years ago. Now a local family is responsible for protection and inheritance, and it has been passed down to the third generation. Before entering Buduruwagala, you need to pass through a wetland. The ecological environment around the wetland is very good, full of various birds and buffaloes. There were some residents living in the surrounding area before, but in order to protect the surrounding ecological environment, most of the residents moved out of this area. When you enter Buduruwagala, you need to buy a ticket of 300Rs. There are two local residents who are responsible for explaining at the door. If there is no lonely planet, you can hire a tour guide to tell you about this stone. Buduruwagala is composed of seven Buddha statues. The largest Buddha statue in the middle is 16 meters high and is the largest Buddha statue in Lanka. Orange lines can be clearly seen on the large Buddha on the left and in the middle, which shows that these Buddha statues were painted a long time ago, but with the passage of time and the washing of rain, the color gradually faded. The one on the right of the largest Buddha statue is believed to be the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. The white female figure on the left is believed to be his spouse Tara.
