Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple

Comments

Such a beautiful place but they're using elephants ... unfortunately they are far from being treated as divinities, the one they have is very young and called Ganga, she has been stolen from the wild. They should stop this practice.
Here's a trailer of the awarded documentary "Gods in shackles" that shows the living conditions of elephants temple in India that is similar to Sri Lanka :

Gangaramaya Temple is one of the most important temples in Colombo, Sri Lanka, being a mix of modern architecture and cultural essence. Don Bastian (de Silva Jayasuriya Goonewardane, Mudaliyar), a famous 19th century shipping merchant who was looking for a suitable land to build a temple for the Matara Sri Dharmarama thero, bought a beautiful piece of land belonging to three Moors, and filled and prepared the land at great expense.
