One of the must visit temples in Colombo. Asokaramaya Buddhist Temple is a Buddhist temple in Kalutara, Sri Lanka. It was built during the 1870s to shelter disciples of Aluthgama Sangharatne who came to hear the monk's sermons. A wealthy local resident funded the temple's construction and subsequent expansion.

This temple is stunning and almost surreal in its beauty. Entrance is cheap but it’s truly magical inside. A must see in Colombo. The bodhi tree is amazing too!

A very beautiful temple inside. A place that is alive with people using the temple. Not large in size and only a short time is required here. Not as inspiring as other temples around the world but worth a visit

We loved the big Buddha statue as well as all the other standing statues. There were three musician playing traditional music to honor Buddha. The colors of the statues and the wall are bright and really nice. Worth visiting in Colombo.

This is the beautiful place and very calming indeed as its old and historical.
The easiest way to reach there is by Tuk bkz its the Center and near to the mall as well, so a day can be well spent if you plan to visit.

This is a very interesting quite large temple with beautiful murals and statues in the shrine room. The Bodhi tree seems very old and large. When I visited some monks were pirit chanting. It is well looked after. I recommend a visit of at least 30 minutes.
