Padeniya - Kandyan woodcarvings at a lowland temple
Padeniya is a village temple located half-way between Kurunegala and Yapahuwa. It’s one of the few lowland temples with typical Kandyan woodcarvings. The entire image house is from the Kandyan period. The establishment of the temple dates back to the Anuradhapura period. One of the ten giant warriors of Dutthagamani is said to have settled down here as a Buddhist monk.
