Nellikulama is a modern temple where you’d walk alongside Gautama Buddha followed by five hundred arhat theros with their alms bowl. You’d picture the amazing tranquility of Buddhist teachings. Passaddhi in Buddhism refers to the tranquility, calmness and serenity of mind, body and speech. The temple is designed for anyone to walk along with these amazing statues and realise the calmness of your soul.

The walk consists of a mountain where there are caves with statues and paintings depicting the various stories of Buddha. 

The temple is located 4.5 kilometers away from Anuradhapura on the Anuradhapura - Thanthirimale road. Wear appropriately when visiting the temple, morning or the evenings are the best to visit.
