Muhudu Maha Viharaya
Steeped in over 2000 years of history, Muhudu Maha Viharaya, is believed to be the place where Princess Devi, the legendary mother of King Dutugemunu, landed at the kingdom of Ruhunu, ending her journey from Kelaniya. (Pictured here are vows and offerings paid by visitors to the temple.)
Muhudu Maha Viharaya is one of the most important places of historic interest on the island. Situated in Pottuvil, just 2 kilometres away from Arugam Bay, it is easily accessible.
