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. Small and neatly condensed, the town offers banks, shops, and small cafes on the main street to cater to all the necessities of a Tissamaharama vacation.
