The Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil throbs with exuberant devotion for Lord Murugan while thousands of Catholic devotees flock to the Madhu Church premises to celebrate the day of assumption of the hallowed Virgin Mary. On the East coast, Arugambay calls out the thrill seekers to ride rollicking waves. Head to the kite surfing haven, Kalpitiya and get whizzed across the water at the speed of the winds. Witness a beautiful spectacle of nature as you visit the Batatotalena Cave Temple, located in the town of Kuruwita.
