Kadadora Temple is another unique temple located in the historical Kotmale area. The reason for such uniqueness is that in the present day, that is, AD. The temple can be seen after 1979 due to the severe drought. The temple is located on the banks of the Kotmale Oya, at the foot of Kadadora Kanda. Among the ruins are a statue, a flower seat, idols and a dragon pandal. What is special is that even after 40 years, the wooden door of the statue is still intact.
