A chapter house situated on an island.
A place that would take the fancy of any traveller passing through Matara is the magnificent Sri Rohana Uposathagaraya that is situated in the midst of the Pigeons Island, connected to the mainland by only a footbridge. Used as a chapter house, a steady stream of visitors can be seen crossing the bridge at any given point, on their way to see this quaint temple. Built in the year 2000, every May, nearly 100 monks from the Rohana sector receive their higher ordination at this temple. The ritual, which spans three to four days takes place in the Seema Malaka of the temple.
