Places to see in Sri Lanka Kataragama Temple

Kataragama Sri Lanka

Sheltered in the foothills, 15 km northeast of Tissa, is Kataragama.

A compelling mix of pomp and procession, piety and religious extravagance, this most holy of towns is a shot of oriental thrills at the end of an island-wide pilgrimage.
Along with Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada), this is the most important religious pilgrimage site in Sri Lanka and is a holy place for Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus alike.
