夜游 Gangaramaya Temple

Gangaramaya Temple可以说是在兰卡一周里去过的唯一景点。傍晚工作结束,一群人就这么转着转着就看到了这个样子很特别的寺庙。既然每个人都感兴趣,那就进去看看吧。

走马观花,匆匆一游,仍然印象深刻:

大殿里极度奢华,真是象牙遍地啊;信徒献给寺庙的东西有专门的房间展示,从老旧的收音机到深藏保险柜的金佛,应有尽有,包罗万象;多元文化交融,关帝,财神也被供奉着;虔诚的信徒三五成群,安静的在寺里敬拜。

回来查阅了资料,我们东鳞西爪,只是看了这寺庙的一点点。Gangaramaya Temple是科伦坡最知名的寺庙之一,而且规模也非常巨大。

这里有篇不错的游记

History Of The Temple
http://gangaramaya.com/about-us/

What was once a swamp adjoining the famous Beira Lake, a landmark in the capital city, is today a vibrant complex comprising the Gangaramaya temple, the ‘seema malaka’ – an assembly hall for monks – in the picturesque Beira Lake and a vocational training institute. The temple has been in existence for over 120 years having being established by one of the most famous scholar monks, Venerable Hikkaduwe Sri Sumanagala Nayaka Thera, founder of the Vidyodaya Pirivena, originally an institute of oriental learning for monks, now a State University – Sri Jayewardenapura University.

He appointed his chief pupil, Devundera Sri Jinaratana Nayake Thera to administer the temple. He laid the foundation to convert the small temple to what it is today – an institution of international reckoning. He made Buddhist texts available to the masses, collected Buddhist artifacts, in addition to the normal facilities for devotees to worship.

When Devundera Vacissara Nayaka Thera succeeded him, further expansion of the temple’s activities was undertaken including the establishment of the Sri Jinaratana Vocational Centre in memory of his teacher monk.
