3 Weeks in Sri Lanka - Day 9: The Three Temples Circuit

There are hundreds of temples in and around Kandy but, on our last day here, we chose to visit three in particular for their history and location. That morning, we had to say goodbye to our guesthouse in Kandy, which the boys really enjoyed, and we took a photo of Ash with a photo of Sai Baba at the home. During this same holiday 14 years ago, Ash traveled to India to stay at Sai Baba's Ashram. A week after she returned to Seoul, we met for the first time! It was good to be reminded of that and to think about our incredible 14 year journey together. Meanwhile, again, we needed to get out of Kandy and into the countryside and these temples offered such an excursion. In the end these three temples ended up being the best we've seen in Sri Lanka so far. They are old and feel that way but the main hall in each is an incredible place of spirit and art. We enjoyed this day very much. Oh, and Rai lost his third tooth while eating an apple on the bus!
