"Katarangama" Kataragama by tayloretc

Kataragama Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 30 photos

Katarangama is one of the three most important religious centers in Sri Lanka. It?s a small town with a massive complex containing temples and shrines for Buddhist and Hindu deities, and a major mosque.

There's not much to the town but it's a neat place to stop. Try to get there for an sunset stroll to the simple but peaceful Kiri Vihara and a noisy evening puja in the shrine to Kataragama (read more about it here).

Back to Mulkirigala or on to Tissa.
