Ambuluwawa Sri Lanka

Ambuluwawa, also spelled Ambuluvava, is the backyard mountain of Gampola in Sri Lanka’s highlands. At an elevation of 1087 above sea level and 700 m above Gampola town in the Mahaweli river valley, the Ambuluwawa mountain hosts a new tourist spot including a biodiversity complex, and Sri Lanka’s first multi-religious sanctuary, with a Hindu Kovil, a Muslim Mosque, and a Christian Chapel, besides several Buddhist shrines. The landmark of the Ambuluawa temple complex is a large winding tower resembling a stylized Buddhist stupa. A sapling of the Anuradhapura Bo-tree is tended here, too.
