Our island’s largest Buddha statue

A visit to Buduruwagala makes for a great stop en route the south coast and the eastern hills, or as a day trip from the hills. Standing at 50 feet, the largest standing Buddha statue in Sri Lanka is hewn out of a single piece of rock at Buduruwagala Temple, just off the road between Beragala and Welawaya in the south eastern hills. The drive here is a scenic one and along with the 50ft Buddha, the complex consists of six smaller statues, with three to each side of the main statue, and has frequent monkeys visiting the site.
