An added benefit is the mind blowing selfies and photos you can get from this spot, sure to be worthy of hundreds of likes!

This statue is built on the bahirava kanda hill which literally means the devil’s hills in Sinhalese. As if the height of the statue wasn’t enough, a stairway built besides the statue can take you to even greater height. What is even more striking is to see this statue lit up at night.

This site is worshiped by many tourists and believers of Buddha. Many people offer flowers and light oil lamps at this spot. The government of Sri Lanka is developing this site to attract from tourists from around the world since it has not yet gained the popularity it so deserves.
