What people are saying:

我和一个当地人参观了这个小佛寺。这是一个非常特别的地方,住着一位104岁的老和尚。该佛寺有许多在经历不同的冲突后归还给斯里兰卡的作品。很值得一看。我们在科伦坡待了一段时间,偶然之间来到了这处景点看到了这里宏伟的寺庙。这里环境非常美丽而宁静,风景绝妙,独居风格。我们非常喜欢欣赏这里多年前留下来的东西,其中包括一些老式的英国汽车。置身其中,你偶尔会感觉自己就像是在超现实金砖四国的市场里逛来逛去,到处都是旧眼镜和各类珠宝。我个人最喜欢的是小佛像,它被放置在一个微型玻璃穹顶里,通过放大镜可以清晰地看到他的面容。

    Gorgeous Buddhas

    I was in a tour group viewing this temple. The gold is almost overwhelming. Don't leave Colombo without visiting.

Additional Information

Introduction

The temple has been established for more than 120 years. It is a well-crafted building that combines the architectural features of Sri Lanka, Thailand, India and China. The entrance to the temple is quite shocking. There are two statues of Guan Gong playing a big knife, and there is a living elephant next to it. The Buddha statues in the temples are a collection of Buddha statues from various Asian countries. The interior of the temple is not large. Several rooms are connected together and full of various treasures. There are hundreds of statues of Buddhas and statues. The posture is strange.
