“……Community Based Tourism at its best……”

Madurawala, Anguruwatota

Madurawala and Anguruwatota are located in the Western Province, Kalutara District. From Kalutara to madurawala is just 30 KMS. Madurawala is accessible from Neboda-Horana Road or Horana-Kalutara Road. The Madurawala Village is located around 52 KMS from Colombo. Madurawala is located in close proximity to Anguruwatota Ancient Village which is part of the ancient Kingdom of Sitawaka and Raigam Kindom. These regions are once the liberation centers of Sinhalease fought against Portuguese.

(Sinhala: සීතාවක) This kingdom was located in south-central Sri Lanka. It emerged from the division of the kingdom of Kotte following the Spoiling of King Vijayabahu in 1521, and over the course of the next seventy years came to dominate much of the island. Sitawaka also offered fierce resistance to the Portuguese, who had arrived on the island in 1505. This kingdom was the abode of the rulers of Sitawaka Rajasinghe and regional leader of Mayadunne in 1594. During the Portuguese and Dutch periods in Sri Lanka (1505-1796) Anguruwatota was a famous stop over for the rafters which ferried all sorts of spices from the upstream of Kaluganga (Kalu River) to Kalutara. In and around of Anugurwatota there are a lot of ancient Buddhist Hermitages that history goes back to before the Christian era.
