Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue Ratings & Reviews
Must see place of Kandy
After visit of Kandy, on the next day in morning while going to Nuwara Elliya, we have been at Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue in Kandy. This is tallest statue of Lord Buddha in Sri Lanka situated on a hillock in Kandy. They charges 200 Sri Lankan Rupee as entry fee for per person. From here we have a nice Ariel view if Kandy. You have to climb just 25-30 steps from your parking. A nice and must see place of Kandy.
Massive Buddha Statue
Looking at the statue from the streets of Kandy I was really tempted to see the Idol from close. Wanted to see how huge would it be, something that is looking massive from so far off. And when I did I had all smiles on my face. The statue is really massive and beautiful. It's just a temple with a huge idol and nothing more special if you're looking for. The temple gives a great view of the city from top. There is an entry fee around 200LKR. Need to have your shoulders and knee covered while entering the temple.
