Wewurukannala Vihara Temple

Wewurukannala Vihara Temple

Dikwella is 18km and 30 minutes’ drive from Tangalle where the most amazing temple called Wewurukannala Vihara is located. Its main focal point is an image of a seated Buddha. It is 160ft high, the largest statue in all of Sri Lanka and dates back to the time of King Rajadhi (1782 – 1798).The temple museum is another must see. The most impressive is the large clock which can be seen from the front of the building. Inside, the mechanism of the clock is protected inside a glass cubicle. The temple walls depict the path towards enlightenment by showing depictions of events in the Buddha’s life. It is a sacred place for all Buddhists.
