  • I have often thought with wonder of the great goodness of Mary and my soul has rejoiced in the contemplation of Her great magnificence and mercy. May she be blessed for ever! For I see clearly that she has not omitted to reward me, even in this life, for every one of my good desires
  • A was trained on aircraft with Sri Lankan buddhist airmen.
  • One of the famous church in Sri Lanka. Poor road from Church to A32 via Andankulam. If your going by car do not go through Andankulam road. Narrow roads with more bushes. Alternative route is B378.
  • The history of the shrine runs 400 years back in time. Even during the time of 30 year long civil war time to time Sinhalese pilgrims reached here even risking own lives. I remember as a very small kid going to madu with my Grand Mother. It was an extraordinary experience. A journey bus full of villages of different faiths reached there on a day in the month of August 1983. During the ceasefire period again I got the opportunity of visiting the site that’s after fine 20 years. The land was under LTTE. Truly horrific but, faith took us there as one families & saw how Sinhala & Tamil communities worship as one family. This is a place you must visit no matter what faith you are belongs to.
  • Very Special Church Of Madu I Liked Madu Churt
