Travel to the oldest temple in the world in search of the world's heighest Buddha's walking statue....
Good Morning Wonderful Steem Community,
Today I ready to share another memorable tour when I go to Ranawana Ancient Temple. The Ranawana ancient Temple is one of the must visit places in the city. Located on the border of Pilimathalawa town, this temple is a favorite tourist attraction for both local and foreign tourists. The reason for this is that the largest statue in the world is in this temple and it is a walk in beauty. This is a good place to visit once again.
The main entrance to the temple floor is glorious. The northern gateway near the Sanchi Stupa in India is uniquely designed. This is the only place in Sri Lanka where the Sanchi Pandal has been built with a special place among the Buddhist arts.
After crossing the Pilimatalawa town on the Colombo-Kandy road for about three kilometers, the railway crosses near the highway artifacts. From there you will have to pass another kilometer on the narrow road leading to the left. It is a sacred site in the middle of a mountainous terrain, the nearest destination.
The path with the stairway leading up to the left from the edge of it is difficult. But for the saints there is no use. Atavisi trees planted on either side of the staircase are growing well. The Samadhi statues are placed in the form of stone to enhance the beauty of the temple. In addition, to the right is the Angulimala Damayanaya sculpture. After passing this place, I paid a little bit for the mountain
Completed. It is a fairly plain road.
A little farther on, there is a sculpture depicting "intrusion". It depicts Prince Siddhartha sitting on a horse and standing next to Minister Channa. And then traveling is one of my most difficult places. But the place itself is wonderful. Created by nature a stairway through a narrow space between two large rocks leads up to the mountains.
After passing the place, we see a strange creation on the left. King Wessantara depicts the sons of Juga Bamunata Jaliya and Krishnajina.
A little further on, a rock falls into the shape of a cave and the Buddha's death coffin has been completed.
From there, you can see the elephant and monkey-assisted Buddha in the forest.
This is a statue of how Prince Siddhartha worked hard before he attained enlightenment.
This is the inauguration of Pinkete, the world's tallest statue in the world. The sacred Buddha statue has been built on a lotus flower with a raised platform on the top of the hill. The statue is simply breathtaking.
This Buddha is 80 feet in height. The total height with the lotus and the base is 100 feet. The sight of the eighty-six Arahants walking behind the statue of the Sacred Buddha is magnificent. A statue of Sumanasaman has also been created behind the statue and the place has a beautiful view of the surrounding hills. This is a very extravagant spectacle. So far, you can walk the plains, passing the mountainous path and worshiping the statue of the goddess, passing eighty idols.
Now you can take imagine how much height about the Buddha statue. The seven Buddhas of Buddhist history are adorned with various carvings, designs and Jataka stories. Immediately after the passing of the Sanchi Pandora, the image of the novice monk was created on the right bank. The driveway next to it is decorated with a cloud wall on the left.
Coming down from the hilltops, these ancient sights are beautiful with all the temples and the historical Ranavana ancient temple. It is the duty of all who come to worship this noble deed to safeguard the land.
