A short, 4 Km drive (tuk tuks are easy or if you’re adventurous, a bike ride is recommended) inland from Unawatuna, along the village roads and rice paddy fields, is the Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya. This quiet, yet popular rock temple features a 9m-long reclining Buddha. The mural-covered walls are painted in the typical style of the Kandyan period. Monks have been living here for at least 1500 years. Not on the tourist map (yet!), this temple is a nice way to partake in homage to Lord Buddha the way the locals do.
