    Strolling around the city, where it's not so many attractions, we went to the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary-The Shrine of Our Lady of Matara which stands overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is said that the Church of the miraculous.

    Very interesting, beautiful and unusual Church Council at the beach. Not enough architecture standard-cross and the façade especially liked, memorable. Within many of the statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. There is even a courtyard. So remember!

    Impressed by the cross with the statue of Jesus-more precisely, what is left of it in the wake of the devastating floods. From the statue remained only hands that and decided to leave. Jesus himself is in a recess under the cross. The Church is very beautiful and comfortable, with many statues which are on the outside and in the courtyard.

    Historic and miraculous church devoted to Our Lady of Matara located opposite the sea beach. During the Tsunami in 2004 part of this church was destroyed and miraculous statue was disappeared with sea water Few days later it was found without any damage. You can read all the details and view the photos at the church.

Where to stay in Matara

A couple of hotels stand close to the train station in Matara, as well as some guesthouses located on the side streets of the Fort district. But the greatest diversity of accommodations lies down by the coast. Matara Beach has some hotels and guesthouses right on the waterfront, while Polhena Beach to the west adds sprawling resorts into the mix, as well as homestays, high-rise hotels, and eco-lodges.
