Where I stayed
to preach the Dhamma and the throne on which he sat is the relic that is now housed in the temple. The temple itself is very spacious and built out of light yellow sandstone. The sculptures are intricate and very beautiful. Amid the yellow tinged temple stands a white washed stupa.
The second half was reserved for SHOPPING!!
Shopping time was spent in 2 of the most known departmental stores - Odel and House of Fashion
We shifted from Grand Oriental to Holiday Inn which is a stones throw from the much famed Galle Face Green which is a promenade- ribbon strip of land between Galle Road and the Indian Ocean. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening watching the kites (which is a very popular pasttimes) competing in the now orange-blue skies. The kites are made on cloth unlike paper ones and are of very beautiful colors and shapes.
