Nalanda Gedige is a fascinating archealogical site located a kilometre east of the A9 route (between Kandy & Dambulla) around 20km north of Aluvihara Temple.

When site seeing in the area, it is included in the Cultural Triangle ticket and is worth a visit for several reasons, one being the composite style of its architecture which exhibits a unique and extraordinary and quite unexpected fusion of Buddhism and Hinduism.
