Kuda Viharaya is situated in Tangalle in Sri Lanka. This is an ancient temple but this place has less recognition. It is also known as the Lesser Rock Temple.

About the destination

Kuda Viharaya is also known as Kuda Gal Viharaya. It is given this name is because of the 4 statues of Buddha which are carved in the rock. But all the heads of the statues are broken but except one statue. It is believed that these are broken by treasure hunters. Somehow the second cave is small and the statues in this place have long disappeared.
