Silver Temple : Michelin's recommendations
The two superimposed sanctuaries here are partly carved out of the rock. Ridi Vihara, the Silver Temple, was originally built by King Duttu Gemunu in the 2C B.C. on the rocky outcrop of a silver-bearing seam, thus its name. The Buddha’s image can be seen everywhere. Magnificent views of theKnuckles Range.
