Tissamaharama

Tourism in Tissamaharama revolves around the town's vast historic and cultural heritage, with the surroundings of scenic paddy fields adding to the ambiance. A number of lovely stupas with walls featuring sculpted elephant heads invoke the past grandeur of the former Sihnalese capital, which features several archeological complexes and temples, and serves as a good base for exploring two nearby national parks and other major pilgrimage sites.
