I went back to the bus station and looked for a hotel. As I was worried, I didn’t find anything. During this time, I simply went into the village coconut grove and wandered along the path. I accidentally found a small and quiet temple with an exquisite large one with a height of more than ten meters. Standing Buddha. I came across a list of hawkers selling some kind of cooked, powder-flavored bean snacks, mixed with dried chili, dried shrimp, coconut meat and bay leaves. It was a rare delicacy I saw in Lanka (a small bag of 1.1 yuan). I also repaired my pair of worn-out sneakers (5.7 yuan) in a run-down shoe repair shop. The cheerful shoe repair brother has a much better English than me. I am ashamed!
It is the largest Indian Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka with exquisite carvings and beautiful murals.
After the restoration, the Buddha has a new look, regardless of the color and the details. Because of colonial relations, Negombo is mainly Catholic, and this largest Buddhist temple is quite special.
Because of the Dutch colonization, most of the residents of Negombo are Catholics, so seeing this Buddhist temple is a bit strange. Come and admire it like this, the style decoration is okay.
It is forbidden to take pictures in the temple, and the exterior buildings are very distinctive. The surrounding scenery is very good. If you have plenty of time, you can take a look!
