Embekka Dewale, Kandy, Sri Lanka.

The audience hall which has lovely wood-work panels on the supporting pillars. 
The 'Wee-bissa' - a large receptacle to contain paddy harvested from the paddy fields belonging to the temple.
Note how the paddy receptacle, made of clay on a bamboo frame-work,  is elevated from the ground to allow circulation of air and to prevent the encroachment of white-ants.
