Located at a very high mountain top. Road is a bit bumpy and dusty. There is a Dagaba on top. Beautiful view. There are Bo plants platend on the slopes and soon it will be Greenish.
We had the most incredible day at the Mahamevnawa monastery. After meeting some monks in Ella Town by chance we didn’t know what to expect when they invited us to visit the monastery. The monastery itself is beautiful. On top of a hill the stupa looks out to incredible scenery. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and enjoyed a really interesting conversation about Buddhism and learnt a lot. After we served the monks food and had lunch ourselves after and then practiced meditation. It was an amazing day that we will never forget and we learned so much. Thank you! If you are in Ella you must visit !!!
