SRI LANKA ~ Kalutara Dagoba ~

... Beautiful nightview with white gleaming dagoba... a place of religious worship and the most dominant landmark of the town... situated on the banks of the River Kaluganga at the point where the river meets the attracts many pilgrims and visitors... Thanks a lot Ravindra!!【ツ】

Kalutara is a large town in Kalutara District, Western Province.

The dagoba was built in the 1960s on the site of a former Portuguese fort. The white 3 storeys-high dagoba is believed to be the only Buddha Stupa in the world which is entirely hollow. Inside the hollow area of the dagoba, a smaller dagoba occupies the centre with its pinnacle soaring towards the dome of the larger one that covers it.

Its interior contains 74 murals, each depicting a different aspect of the Buddha's life.
