Gal Vihara is a large granite rock temple from the 12 century. Carved into the face of the rock is a shrine of four larger than life buddhas. One of these images I stood in front of which seemed like for hours was the reclining Buddha. It is the largest statue in Gal Vihara and also one of the largest sculptures in Southeast Asia. It depicts the parinirvana of the Buddha.
