Colombo, Sri Lanka

Pay a visit to the beautiful Seema Malaka Temple

Floating in the middle of the Beira Lake and far away from the hustle and bustle of the capital Colombo in Sri Lanka is the beautiful Buddhist temple of Seema Malaka. The temple was originally built in the late 19th century, but slowly sank into the water in the 1970s. The current structure was redesigned and constructed by the famous Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa in 1976 with the inspiration of ancient monasteries in forests of Anuradhapura and Ritigala. Today, Seema Malaka is a part of the lavishly decorated Gangaramaya Temple, located few hundred meters to the east, and is better known as a meditation and inauguration place for Buddhist monks. Set on three platforms over water with the bridges like walkways, the temple looks apparent in the deep blue color of the main temple’s roof, and delicate wooden spindles and banisters. Visitors will also find numerous seated Buddha statues and an image of Guanyin within the temple complex.
