This Buddhist temple has a huge statue of standing Buddha along with many sculptures however explanation was missing. Tuk Tuk driver befooled us and took us to many places which were not in our itinerary including this one. However this place wasn’t disappointing, provided you are in Kandy. Rest of the Kandy city looked overhyped, continuous rain and tuk tuk driver spoiled our day. The tourist must hire the tuk tuk according to their itinerary, not that of the driver. They tend to take you to the places of commercial interests- gems/ jewellery/ spices/ tea etc

This is my third visit to the temple.. Due to the travel restrictions few weeks back, there were not much crowd..

Much better if they can put some benches around the way and keep in your mind Ranawana Do not have wheel chair access..

Not happy. We have just arrived at this temple to see an elephant chained up on its own near to the entrance. If you have any care for animals please do not support this tourist attraction.

Came here around noon and it was blazing hot! Considering you have to walk bare foot, we didn’t manage stay up at the top too long as our feet were burning. A lot of interesting depictions about Buddhas life, but no information in English unfortunately.

Worth a visit

The Ranawana temple in Pilimatalawa is one of the newly constructed temples with built environment. There are number of life size sculptures depicting the life of lord Buddha and other Buddhist historical events. All of them are displayed on the sides of the path which directs to the top of the rock. Since the sculptures are in the natural garden, we feel that it is like walking at the exact place where they happened in the ancient times. At the top of the rock, there is a giant Buddha statue depicts the walking posture, which is the only one of such type. The visit is good for Buddhists as well as travelers who seek different experiences.
Path to top of the rock is easy to walk as it doesn't have very steep climbing.
Two hours will be enough to spend here. Easy access from Colombo - Kandy main road. There's a large sign board near the railway crossing of Pilimatalawa. Only 1 km away from the main road. If you are coming by public transport, get down from the bus at Pilimatalawa railway crossing. Three wheelers (Taxi) are available. Even you can walk. Good for family trips with kids. Lot of photography scenes are available.

Quite hidden. Intersting temple but no english explainations on board, which is a pity. But good part is that there are not many tourists and very local.

But very interesting Buddhist temple with the tallest walking Buddha statue. Lots of sculptures (modern day) with stories. Little information and guidance. Involves lot of climb through almost deserted areas. Not recommended for solo traveller. The staff are friendly but not much helpful.
