Three temple excursion
The three Buddhist temples date back to the 14th century AD and are found near Kandy. Best visited together, they all carry distinct features that make them stand out.
Gadaladeniya shows slightly unusual architecture with a dagoba covered by a wooden roof. The temple also houses various stone sculptures including one of Siva, its most prominent. Embekke is famous for its intricately craved wooden pillars, whereas, Lankatilleke is a temple dedicated to Buddhism as well as Hinduism
