Angurukaramulla Temple, Negombo Reviews
This is a nice little tempel which is beautifully coloured and maintained. There was also a guide at the temple who told us some facts. Great to visit, but our stay only last 15 minutes. In the end he also gave us the donation book, where apparently all guests donated high amounts of money (this seemed like tricking the tourists and he was fine with way less than what was written there)
Buddhist temple. We went to this beautiful temple which interesting to go inside through a lions mouth which made of cement and finish’s with a nice paintings. When u went inside u can see beautiful painted statues with the stories of Buddha and some Kings.
