Tep Pranam

2 1

Tep Pranam, found to the north of the Leper King Terrace, boasts a 75-metre long laterite causeway, at the end of which sits a large seated Buddha.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

The site is dated to around the ninth century, when a Buddhist temple would have sat atop a 30-metre by 30-metre platform, only the base of which remains today. Various additions, such as the balustrades and lions, are thought to have been made in the 12th and 13th centuries. The five- or six-metre tall Buddha is in the subduing Mara position, and is made of repurposed stone. Tep Pranam is worth a quick glance for its pleasant tree-filled setting. An active Buddhist temple remains at the site.
