Seema Malaka temple. Panorama RF
This tranquil expanse of water in the heart of the city is a place for quiet contemplation. On one side of the lake is the Seema Malaka Temple, connected to the shore by a series of walkways and designed by architect Geoffrey Bawa, who reputedly drew inspiration from the forest monasteries of Anuradhapura. It is used as an inauguration hall for monks from the nearby Gangaramaya Temple.
