Discover Kataragama

The most sacred place in Sri Lanka, this site welcomes Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims who come to pray and offer their gifts from July to August. The god Skanda is venerated by these three religions. The god lies in the Maha Devale sanctuary.

The Kataragama Temple

There is an Islamic mosque inside the temple. Followers of both religions cohabitate in harmony, moved by the same fervour for their respective gods.
