A church with miracles.

Positioned across the small beach strip where many find a welcome interlude among the waves is the Church of our Lady of Matara, formerly known as St Mary’s Church. Built in 1907, the statue of the Blessed Mary and Child within the church is said to have belonged to the Portuguese era dating back to the 17th Century. The mystery is that no proper record exist as to who really sculpted the statue or which country it came from and many devotees believe that the statue itself is a miracle.
