Gadaladeniya temple - Sri Lanka's best Gampola-period paintings
Gadaladeniya is one of the three “Western Temples” near Kandy. It is a building from the 14th century Gampola period. Small Hindu shrines are integrated in the mainly Buddhist temple. Gadaladeniya is famous for Sri Lanka’s best paintings from the Middle Ages. Another remarkable feature is a stupa with four adjacent chapels in a cruciform layout and protected by a roof.
