Kalutara

The bustling village of Kalutura is well known for its fantastic beaches and great handicrafts. Kalutura is located just 42 km from the capital Colombo and was briefly the capital itself in the 11th century. The area became most famous between the 16th and 18th centuries when it was the centre of the spice trade. This historic area is also home to the Gangatilaka Vihara an interesting temple painted with 74 murals that depict Buddha’s story. For something completely unique to this area, visitors must try Mongosteens, a shiny dark purple fruit which is a real local specialty. There is much to see and do on a holiday in Kalutura; visit the town’s Basket Hall exhibition centre, shop for local handicrafts, try a variety of water sports or simply enjoy the beautiful beaches, the best attraction of them all.
