1. Karabagala Aranya Senasanaya

Karambagala Forest Retreat is in the Suriyawewa Divisional Secretariat. It is believed to be the Bilivana Vihara identified in the inscription of King Sri Meghavanna (303-331AD). The temple is also named Karandulena owing to its appearance as a relic casket when viewed from a distance.
A number of caves with Brahmi inscriptions have been discovered from the area and some of them had undergone changes and acquired new features during the present time as a result of human intervention to improve their appearance. The cave known as Kurundaka mentioned in the Visuddhimagga where a thera by name Cittagutta had resided in it for sixty years, oblivious of the existence of the painting, is believed to be in this site. The cave that could be assumed to be this same cave is having the remnants of a work of art painted in red on a layer of mortar.

4. Madunagala Hot Water Springs

Madunagala Hot Water Springs lie among vast paddy fields between Sooriyawawe and Ridiyagama, Today this hot water well is one of the most popular destinations for the pilgrims to the South. The spring was first recorded by Leonard Woolf, Assistant Government Agent of Hambanthota (1908-11) in his diaries recording the haphazard journey through wild animal infested jungles and boat rides to reach the hot spring where he had taken sample to be analysed.
In 2000’s this spring was identified to be developed in to a major tourist attraction. Today four wells have been built surrounding the main spring with varying degrees of temperature. The area is now landscaped and separate changing rooms and toilets for two sexes also has been built. A play area, a mini zoo and a aquarium has also been built for the children.

5. Ramba Rajamaha Viharaya

Ramba Rajamaha Viharaya in Ruhuna is located on the bank of the Walawe Ganga, in the village of Udarata on the Nonagama-Ratnapura Road. It is about 12.8 km from Ambalantota.
Maha Nagakula was the capital of ancient Sri Lanka in the 11th century AD. There had been an advanced civilization in the area. A large number of artifacts which had been found following research explorations conducted by scholars during the dry season had proved this fact. The venue itself is unique as there had been an ancient international harbour at Godawaya.

6. Ussangoda National Park

Ussangoda National Park is the most recently established National Park owing to its biological, archaeological and geographical value. It is comparatively small for a park, spreading only 349 hectares (1.35 sq mi). Situated within the turtle breeding zone, the Kalametiya Wildlife Sanctuary, another famous landmark, lies on its western border.
Getting back to the speculation about Ussangoda, the scientific school of thought is that the site is that of a meteor strike that happened ages ago, probably during the prehistoric era. To the laymen, the red brick-like soil, which is unique to the area, does resemble intensely scorched earth. Another clue would be the red lumps scattered here and there that could very well be the remains of a  ”petrified” forest. Although scientific testing is yet to be done, the soil here is supposed to be extremely rich in minerals.  The red color comes from the ferric oxide which is abundant in the area. Breaking apart a rock shows distinct layers of colors within a cross section.
