Koneswaram Temple

Description

Dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva, Koneswaram Temple (Temple of a Thousand Pillars) is found perched on Swami Rock, a cliff overlooking the expansive Indian Ocean, which as it turns out it excellent for spotting blue whales as well. You’ll be privy to some stunning views from up here, whilst also learning about Shiva, and the presence of the Hindu culture here in Sri Lanka. Much like all other historical places of worship, this too is a work of art and features plenty of intricate and opulent details that makes the temple – or kovil, as it’s also known, stand out.
