Tissamaharama is one of the most pleasant towns in the southern coast. The beautiful man-made tank (reservoir) in Tissa, Tissa Wewa with its remarkable bird life provides the scenic backdrop to the town.
Yala National Park (divided into Yala East and Yala West) is situated in the southeast corner of Sri Lanka, approximately 300 kilometres from the capital, Colombo.
Bundala is an important wetland sanctuary that has been recognised under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, but it has always been less visited than Yala. It shelters some 150 species of birds.
Most impressive is the restored Maha Stupa, built by King Kavantissa in the 3rd century BC located between Tissa town centre and the tank. It was the largest dagoba in the island at the time. Today, for Buddhist pilgrims, it is one of the sixteen most sacred sites in the country.
Kirinda is a small but beautiful village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 10 km south of Tissa & close to Kataragama. It has a beautiful beach and a Buddhist shrine built on a huge round rock.
Kataragama is one of the oldest and certainly the most venerated variety of religious sites of pilgrimage devoted to various deities of Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim worship in Sri Lanka.
North of the modern town lies the beautiful Tissa Wewa, an expansive artificial lake built by King Kavantissa in the 2nd century BC of the ancient southern kingdom of Ruhuna.
Sella-Kataragama is 5km away from the Kataragama town. When Valli, a daughter of a Vedda chieftain refused to marry God Skanda, suddenly an elephant appeared out of the jungle frightening her.
Kiri Vehera is 95 ft. in height and has a circumference of 280 feet. It is believed that King Mahasena, who ruled over Kataragama area, became a follower of Buddhism during Lord Buddha's third and final visit to Sri Lanka, who in return, built the Kiri Vehera Dageba.
