  • Well worth a visit try to get there for 9.00am so that you get a private tour which takes about 1 hour.  more »
  • We have rent bikes in hotel and went to castle. Buliding is really worth seeing. It has been owned by musaliyar family. Nowadays is delapidated. Ticket is 500 rubis for foreginers :)  more »
  • And so, it's no lock. At the moment, it decayed, razvalennoe, sometimes with black mold, an abandoned building. For some reason, people love him so, understanding no. In this case, you will take an entrance fee of RP 500 (with the way local 30) for this card you will see the consequences of human labor, "which previously beautiful manor house, now looks like, sorry, how about gov. Former master bequeathed his estate, State, and committed, it seems to me a huge mistake. Now from its former glitz, there remained only the old photo host, carelessly placed from collapsing walls, dotted with plastic bottles. Actually, spectacle, very sad. Sincerely sorry for such a beautiful building.

Where to stay in Kalutara

Beach resorts dominate in Kalutara, with a selection of large, luxurious options pressed right up against the coast. Most of these expansive resorts offer swimming pools, restaurants, and a range of amenities to complement their natural surroundings. If you're looking for something more budget-friendly, cast your eye a few streets back from the beach to find basic guesthouses, which offer little in the way of amenities, but plenty in terms of rustic charm and friendliness.
