Bambaragala Temple Visit + Hike

Built over 250 years ago, the Bambaragala Cave Temple has a rich history and an even richer mythology. The cave temple has ancient drawings and markings possibly pre-dating the Kandyan era, and the climb
up to the top of the Bambaragala rock gives you stunning panoramic views of the Victoria Reservoir and
the entire region. While the temple is suitable for all ages, the hike is only recommended for agile, experienced hikers. The hike will take approximately 1 hour and the final stretch requires agility and balance.


The temple is located around 1 hour away from Santani. This excursion will take just over 5 hours, if you embark on the hike, will it will take less time, if it is only restricted the to the temple visit.
