The South

As well as containing many excellent beach resorts such as Tangalle and Hambantota, the southern region of Sri Lanka is alive with culture and religious activity. Sites to visit include Werehena temple near Matara with a five storey building enclosing a Buddha statue filled with comic strips of the Buddha’s life and Kataragama where the Lord Kataragam, an incarnation of the Hindu wargod Skanda, is worshiped.
