uggala temple (vihare & devale), balangoda (#5)
Ancient 'Uggala Aluthnuwara & Katharagama Devale (Temple & Shrine) is situated in Imbulpe, Balangoda. Photos are from a recent visit to the temple by my mate Chinthaka Wickramage.
Here is a blog link with more information of the temple.
How to get there: To get to the Uggala Temple you have to go past the Balangoda town on Route A4 (Colombo-Wellawaya Road) and there is a small town called Imbulpe just after you pass Balangoda and there is a large masonry archway done across the road and there you have turn to the road which leads to the Devale about a kilometer interior. There are sign boards along the main road giving you the distance to the devale.
Devale is a big complex with the whole building raised about 20 feet above the surrounding area.
