An amazing view point of the Kandy town, you can walk up the stairs to view the Buddha statue located up hill. The gigantic Buddha statue is about 88 feet in height. Bahiraviokanda vihara Buddha statue is one of the tallest and beautiful Buddha statues in Sri Lanka. The hill where the statue was built called bahirava kanda; in Sinhalese it means the devil’s hill. A stairway besides with the statue can be climbed for a greater height. In fact it will be well worth to see the statue lit up at night. A good getaway from the busy streets of Kandy and pleasing panoramic view can be observed from here. The small gallery inside displays a collection of some magnificent pictures of Buddha’s life from baby to manhood. One of the best features is the souvenir shop where you can get goods cheaper than in the city.
