Mottunna Sri Kireetaramaya Purana Tampita Viharaya
Built on pillars, the ancient Tampita Vihara is inside the new Mottunna Sri Kireetaramaya. However, the Tampita Vihara is considered one of the best-preserved Tampita Viharaya in the Gampaha District.
The wooden handrail sits beautifully around the structure. Entrance to the inner chamber is decorated with two statues of guardian deities.
The Buddha statue is flanked by statues of Vishnu and Saman deities.
The chamber walls are painted with beautiful murals of the Suvisi Vivaranaya.
The Vihara is situated on the Veyangoda road towards Nittambuwa.
Turn left to the Kottala road and proceed about 1.8 km.
