The temple, built in 1916, was constructed by a father in memory of his son. The father was D.D. Pedris, whose son Henri Pedris was executed by the British on a false charge of rioting. The temple is known for its large stupa, the many exquisitely carved Buddha statues, and a beautiful boa tree. The walls are filled with murals painted in the 1920s. The chambers are filled with Hindu and Buddhist relics and artefacts. People visit it as much for its serene atmosphere as for its many architectural highlights.
