Magnificent Madu Ganga

Koth Duwa Raja Maha Viharaya
One of the main attractions of Madu Ganga is most likely the Koth Duwa Raja Maha Viharaya, a one-and-a-half century old temple situated within the wetland. It is believed that this serene temple had provided first accommodation for the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha when it was brought to the isle. The Chief Prelate of Kothduwa Raja Maha Vihara, Ven. Omanthai Pugngnasara, is the fourth chief prelate successor of the temple. The temple also owns a 130-year old Bo tree planted by King Parakramabahu's Minister, Deva Pathiraja. Samson Rajapakse Wasala Mudali built the temple around the Bodhi as the years swept by.
