Sri Muthumariamman Temple

We learned very little on-site when visiting this temple, in the town of Matale, near Kandy. We didn’t have a guide, and there was little in the way of informative signage—none in English. Which is fine. In fact, we didn’t even get inside. We were told it was a Hindu temple, but Wikipedia says it’s used by both Hindus and Buddhists, which is nice.The name breaks down to “rain,” “pearl” and “Amman” (mother). So it’s a shrine to the goddess of rain.
