The Gangaramaya temple was the first one one I visited since I landed in Colombo, Sri Lanka. In an instant one understands the culture of the land – like this temple’s architecture, Sri Lankan culture is a mix of Indian, Sri Lankan, Thai, and Chinese.
This beautiful temple has the main features of a Vihara, a hindu temple, a Cetiya or Pagoda, a Bodhitree, a Seema malaka or an assembly hall for monks and a relic chamber.
Here are some of the photos I clicked. Notice that even random photos from a non-professional camera gives awesome results – all thanks to the photogenic quality of the temple itself.
