A Pilgrimage Special: Visiting Mulagandha Kuty Vihara

Visiting Mulagandha Kuty Vihara was just like another visit to a normal Buddhist temple. Perhaps, the only thing special about visiting this Vihara is that this Vihara was founded by the notable Anagarika Dharampala, the Sri Lankan who was responsible for the revival of Buddhism in India. Inaugurated in 1931, there are also sacred relics of Lord Buddha here as well as paintings on the temple walls of Buddha's life by Japanese artist,Kosetsu Notsu...

Are those bell-towers? I thought there are not in buddhist temples...

I can't remember seeing any bell there; but the structures don't look Buddhist, now that you mention it. But then, what is in a structure, it's the thoughts that count!
