Wewukannala Vihara, Dickwella

This colourful temple complex was constructed in the 1960’s and has the largest seated Buddha statue in Sri Lanka which is 50 meters in height. There is a seven storey building which one can climb up to the head of the statue which provides sweeping views over the temple complex and the surrounding area. One of the main highlights is to visit the main image house from the 19th century which has a chamber of horrors with life-size models portraying numerous punishments inflicted on sinners along with paintings of the sins and punishments for misdeeds.
