EXPERIENCES

Kudawella Blowhole

Stop also at the Kudawella “blowhole” on the edge of the ocean, a unique natural formation where pressure from the crashing surf forcefully shoots water out of a crevice in a seaside cliff.

Mulgirigala Monastery

Visit Mulgirigala, an ancient and historically very important monastery atop a rock that, like Sigiriya, rises nearly 700 feet (213 meters) above the surrounding forest. Here, a key archaeological discovery was made in the 19th century, when tea-leaf scripts found in a cave atop the rock proved to be a “Rosetta Stone,” enabling the translation of Sri Lanka’s oldest texts.

Wewurukannala Buddhist Temple

Visit Wewurukannala Buddhist Temple in Dikwella, whose 160-foot high seated Buddha statue dates to the late 18th century. Wewurukannala is a working temple with resident monks, some of whom you will be able to meet with and talk about their spiritual practice.
