Temple on the Rocks

We went to Kirinda beach and there was a temple on the rocks. It was built when a princess was washed ashore there because her father had un fairly put to death a Buddhist monk and then the sea rose up and almost flooded the city. The waters stopped rising when he gave his daughter to the sea, he put her in a boat. She was found washed ashore at Kirinda, the local king found her, fell in love with her, and married her. A temple was built on the rocks to honour her.
