Ridi Vihara means silver temple. It was built by King Dutugemunu on the site of a great silver ore deposit. That silver was used for the Ruwanwelisaya stupa in Anuradhapura, but the temple here is still quite a sight.
Shailabembarama Maha Viharaya (Dodanduwa) is one the finest of the island' Southern temples. The image house has fine examples of temple murals/paintings. I got 'lost' in the image house, documenting the work on the walls.
