Sima Malaka Temple

Recommended
The waters of Beira Lake add to the charm of the little Sima Malaka Temple on its eastern shore. This centre for Buddhist meditation, recently designed by Sri Lankan Geoffrey Bawa, belongs to the neighbouring Gangaramaya Temple. Try to visit during the Navam Perahera, a procession led by 50 elephants.
