Modern stupa and home to the city’s premier Buddhist TV channel
This unusual modern stupa with arches across the road makes for a curious sight. It’s actually a well-known place of worship, perhaps even one of the most popular temples in Colombo, attracting devotees from all walks of life who are looking to find some solace in spirituality. The place is renowned for meditation, lessons and sermons in Buddhism by reputed monks and live broadcasts. When you visit make sure to dress in white.
The Sambodhi Maha Viharaya also serves as the headquarters of Buddhist TV, the country’s premier Buddhist channel, from here sermons are broadcasted all over the country. Namaste!
