    Statue looks same with the Wewrukannala Statue but despite being shorter than Wewrukannala one, this one is colorful.  more »

    The House was completely decorated with wall paintings of the life of Buddha. Giant meditating Buddha is very impressive. He is highly 39mtr. We had the pleasure to get a private tour and have given this a lot of background knowledge get. An absolute must. Admission: 250 RP/person

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.
