Hi Lilani,

Other than the given list, you can try the followings,

1.  Dadagamuwa Viharaya :   Located  1km in distance to Heendeniya - Pattigoda railway station. This historic temple was built in King Dewanampiyathissa era. It has an ancient "Watadage" and 120ft height recently built Statue. Very calm & quite place located near a huge paddy field.

2. Asgiriya Historic Temple :  There are two temples at Asgiriya. The said one is located at Bulathkade junction to Wathumulla road. This has a historic dewalaya & nice temple on the rock. ( Number of Mobile-Phone towers are located there ). Evening is the best time to climb the rock. (you can see up to Colombo).It is located 1.5km from Gampaha.

3. Aluthepola Historic Temple : this is also a rock base temple, located close to Minuwangoda (15km far from Gampaha.)

4. Ketawala anicut is also located near Gampaha. (4km in distance).

Regards,

viraj
