Hindu and Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka

The country has religious diversity, and it is possible to discover it through its different Hindu and Buddhist temples.
Sri Lanka is known for its deities. You will come across temples representing the two main religions as you travel through the country. A majority of Sri Lankans are Buddhists and worship the deity Buddha. In the cultural triangle, stop at the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, the Golden Temple in Dambulla, and the Sri Maha Bodhi Temple in Anuradhapura. The Hindu religion is the second-largest in Sri Lanka. Colorful temples dedicated mainly to Shiva will amaze you. The Muthumariamman Temple, located in Matale, is resplendent with bright colors and a history of more than 250 years. If you make a stopover in the coastal city of Colombo, do not miss the Buddhist temples Gangaramaya and Isipathanaramaya but also the oldest Hindu temple in the country, the Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam.
