The Kalutara Vihara is a dagoba (buddhist shrine) located south of the Kalutara Bridge. It is the world's only hollow Buddhist shrine and its interior contains 74 murals, each depicting a different aspect of the Buddha's life. The remaining temple buildings feature the Bodhiya (one of 32 saplings of the sacred Bo tree) and several Buddha shrines.
