About Sambodhi Chaithya, Colombo

This unusual but grand Buddhist stupa and shrine is built high upon two interlocking arches at the entrance to the Colombo Harbour. To get up there, you have to climb the stairs of the attached tower. Take your shoes off first, and then take deep breath. It's 260 steps to the top. From there, you have some of the best views you'll ever get of the city and the sea in Colombo. Naturally, visit at sunset. The inside walls of the stupa are covered with drawn panels that depict scenes from the life of the Buddha. It's a very serene and tranquil spot.
