Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue | Srilankan Guides
This place in Kandy gives an amazing view of the whole town. There’s a really tall Buddha statue, 88 feet high, that you can’t miss when you’re in Kandy. It’s white and sits on top of Bahirava Kanda hill, so you can spot it from anywhere in Peradeniya city.
To get there, you can either climb the steps or take a tuk-tuk. The statue looks even more beautiful at night when it’s all lit up with lamps. The best times to go are early morning or after the sun sets. It’s a must-visit spot in Sri Lanka.
What’s cool about it? You’ll see the whole city from up there, including the lake, a tea factory, and a football stadium. Inside, there’s a gallery with things about Buddha’s life, and a shop where you can buy nice souvenirs at good prices.
