Nalanda Gedige Sri Lanka

Among places to visit in Nalanda lies an ancient building made out of stones, near Matale. The richly decorated facade sections, laboriously reassembled in 1975, are predominantly in the South Indian style, and may have originated in the eighth to 11th centuries, but cannot be precisely dated.
