  • 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.
