A combination of a Buddhist temple and a museum. it contained many items of religious relevance, including gold, stones, elephant ivory, porcelain, Chinese statues, stamps, watches, cameras, photographs, coins, one taxidermied elephant, stereos, shells, swords, and some other very weird items. I believe many of these items were donations made to the museum. The centre of the temple was its main prayer area. The whole vibe was quite peaceful but also a little eerie. To get a good feel of the place, I'd recommend going at night or in the evening. Location - Sri Jinarathana Rd Entry fee - LKR 400 per person

I was in a tour group viewing this temple. The gold is almost overwhelming. Don't leave Colombo without visiting.
