Hambanthota Tour

Start journey from hambanthota to kirinda. The small port of Kirinda on the south coast about 10km south of Tissamaharama is a strange and haunting place bypassed by most visitors. On a clear day the lighthouse on the Great Basses Reef appears like a needle in the far distance.  After we visit kirinda temple. Kirinda centres on this imposing hilltop Buddhist shrine, which includes a stupa and huge standing Buddha. It is dedicated to Queen Viharamahadevi. While travelling katharagama we visit Thissamaharamaya Temple, the most worshiped and the largest is the Tissamaharama Stupa & according to ancient chronicles this stupa has been built by King Kavantissa who ruled Ruhuna in the 1st century BC. After that we visit Ranminithenna tele cinema village, This studio located halfway between Tissa and Kataragama is only mentioned because some drivers and tours will suggest you visit. Structures meant to recreate colonial Bombay are crumbling in the tough local climate and there is a general air of decay. The foreigner admission fee is pure rip-off. Finally we reach our destination katharagama.
