Offers a great view over the town. Can keep going up to single tree hill and then pass down to the village via a connecting path.

This well kept temple is run by the Sri Chinmaya mission. It is at the top of a hill with a lovely view. There are several pujas per day, a bookstore and a restaurant.

Very impressive temple spotlessly neat and clean. This is the first pace where Hanuman visited in Sri Lanka. The temple is on a high elevation so a short climb up.

When we visited, unfortunately the temple was closed (2 pm). However, we enjoyed the view there and had lunch at their restaurant which serves very good vegetarian food.
