Many deities stood together on the roof of the Hindu temple

Although the religious majority in Sri Lanka was Buddhism, there were also Hindus. Therefore, there were also Hindu temples along with Buddhist temples. I found a small Hindu temple when I walked the streets. Its roof was decorated with many statues. Apparently, its style was called 'Dravidian style'.

All of the statues were deities of Hinduism. Because Hinduism is a polytheistic religion, many deities stood on the roof of the temple. There were so many deities that it was impossible to distinguish.
