Machete Monk

By RobboB  
Taken at the Galapata Vehara temple near Bentota, Sri Lanka. This is not some kind of new breed of warrior Buddhist monk. I think he was chopping fruit or something as the temple was preparing for a festival day

The looks none too happy at having his photo taken. Good shot.

The thought of the empty discarded flip flops and a monk with a machete is somewhat horrifying to say the least…

I was at Bentota beach for two weeks and loved the area, then I travelled North as far a the tea plantations in Little England. It's a place I would return to visit again... Did you go south of Bentota to Gale area?
