Arriving in Tangalle late in the afternoon meant that we only had a few hours left to witness the sunset on top of Mulkirigala Rock Temple. We decided that hiring a scooter would be the quickest way to get there. The temple is 20 minutes away from Tangalle and getting there was just as much fun. We passed through sleepy towns, lush paddy fields and one dodgy traffic officer who decide to make a quick buck off us (for not wearing helmets, which was reasonable). Clambering up the 300 temple steps as soon as we arrived, we just got in time for the golden hour.
