Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, Kandy - 2020 (Photos & Reviews)

About Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue

This place showcases a breathtaking view of the entire Kandy town. The 88ft high statue of Buddha is something one should not miss while in Kandy. The white statue can be seen from any part of the Peradeniya city as it is strategically located on top of the Bahirava Kanda (devil’s) hill. You can either climb the steps to reach the viewpoint or else hire a tuk-tuk to do so. The beauty of the statue doubles during the night when it is lit by lamps. Best hour to visit this place is early morning or after sunset.

Panoramic view of the city down, including a view of the lake, tea factory, and football stadium; gallery that has artefacts based on life of Buddha; a souvenir shop which has lovely goodies at a much friendlier price
