How to Reach Gangaramaya Temple

How to reach Gangaramaya Temple is a big question for all history buffs around the world as well as those on a spiritual quest. Located close to Dehiwala, and set near Gangaramaya Park and Beira Lake, Gangaramaya Temple is easy to reach. The quickest solution to how to reach Gangaramaya Temple is from Colombo city itself.  

Cabs are the cheapest and easiest mode of transport from Colombo city to Gangaramaya Temple. This should give another inkling as to how to reach Gangaramaya Temple. The closest airport to Gangaramaya Temple is Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo. Taking a cab is not really a very expensive idea if traveling to the temple directly.

The closest railway station is in Mount Lavinia, which is quite a long way away from the temple grounds. So, a 34-kilometer drive from Colombo is the best answer to how to reach Gangaramaya Temple. The nearest port is Colombo Harbor for tourists arriving by sea. There is a similar scenario with the distance from Colombo Port to this epic Buddhist Vihara. A slightly unconventional way to go is the local specialty – Tuk-Tuk rides. The rides offer exactly that at very flexible price ranges. This is best for tours of the entire city of Colombo and not just one location at a time.
