In the central highlands of Sri Lanka, Ambuluwawa is a wildlife complex and Sri Lanka's first multi-religious sanctuary. In Gampola, the Ambuluwawa Trigonometrical Station is made up of a massive spiraling tower. Ambuluwawa is Sri Lanka’s first multi-religious center. It includes a Temple, Kovil, Mosque, and a Church. Ambuluwawa Temple, with a height of 48 meters, is known to be suggestive of a Buddhist ‘stupa.' From the outset, this Multi-Religious Centre demonstrates ideal harmony and unity among us, Sri Lankans. You can get to Ambuluwawa Tower from Kandy or Gampola. It's around 5 kilometers from Gampola's town center. Little known about this site is, it is 3567 meters above sea level and there are 200 plants that belong to 80 species. We know the climb to the top is a bit tough but then again you know hardest climbs always give the best views. When reached the top, at south you can see the Siri Pada or Adam’s Peak and at North the Mountain range of Knuckles, meanwhile, at the west, the Bible Rock or Bathalegala can be observed and at East a beautiful scenery from Piduruthalagala Mountain.
