Hindagala Temple is situated on the road from Peradeniya to Deltota. Few kilometers from the Galaha junction and drive through the Peradeniya campus. The entrance is at the left hand side of the road when you driving from Kandy or Peradeniya. There is two access to the temple. One is a stone steps from the main road. you can see a sign board with directions to Hindagala temple there. Other one is a road up to the hill located some meters away from the stairs. If you are visiting with your own vehicle, you can drive up to the hill some far along that road. You can also arrive there by bus very easily from Kandy or Galaha junction. Ask someone there to get the correct bus. As I remember it doesn't far more than 6-7 kilometers from Colombo-Kandy highway.
