Biggest and one of the holiest temples in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It’s supposedly to have a sacred relic of Buddhas hair stored in one of the well protected cabinets. It was a nice temple, but nothing really special if you have been around Asia a lot. This inner yard was really pleasant spot though.

Tip: In big cities never believe anything people say about coming festivals, bus timetables etc. Or at least check the info from at least two sources before getting a tuktuk there. Otherwise you’ll get hustled bad.
