Kalutara Tailormade Holidays

Kalkutura is a coastal town in the south west of Sri Lanka, just 40km south of the capital Colombo.

Originally an important spice trading port, Kalutara is now a bustling market town with many road side stalls selling a variety of goods. It is popular for the purple Mongosteen fruit, a local speciality which is worth trying. However it should be noted that the reddish-brown juice of the fruit's outer shell is potent and if it soaks into your clothes. it can be impossible to remove.

Other attractions include the renowned Gangatilaka Shrine, which is the only hollow Buddhist shrine on earth. It features 74 murals depicting the story of Buddha. Not far from here is the plantation mansion Richmond Castle, which tastefully blends British and Indian architecture. It is possible to canoe or cycle around the picturesque grounds.

The beautiful palm fringed beach is the main reason for visiting Kalutara. This huge white sandy expanse of a beach is north of town and remains relatively unspoilt, so it is definitely well worth a visit.
