Wewurukannala Vihara Temple - Dikwella - Beliatte Rd, Dikwella, Sri Lanka

In these hard times, many can relate to the Buddhist idea of travelling through Hell to get to Heaven. However, Wewurukannala Vihara Temple gives the opportunity to do just that. In order to gain access to the massive Buddha in the temple complex, pilgrims and visitors have to go down into a scary tunnel, lined with boiling cauldrons, fanged demons and sinners being cut in half. This is considered to be the path of enlightenment sinners experience should they choose to succumb to temptations.
