Boasting of a proud history spanning over many centuries and home spectacular natural beauty, Sri Lanka is an iconic holiday destination whose ethnic vibrancy and energy will keep you coming back for more. This resplendent isle found at the heart of the Indian Ocean is home to a delicate synthesis of ethnic communities whose differing religious and spiritual faiths have lead to a number of unexplainable and mysterious legends and myths surrounding certain places of worship.
The Kebiliththa Devalaya i.e. The Kebiliththa Temple is one such sacred place of worship revered by the locals and comes with its own beliefs and myths. Devotees of the Katharagama God consider this temple extremely holy as they believe that the God currently resides there and this belief indeed makes the temple extremely sacred in the eyes of the local ethnic communities.
Those wishing to opt for this tour of the temple should keep in mind that the conditions that are to be endured to reach this place of worship is extremely tough and rigorous. Local beliefs also endorse the idea that patrons of the temple must refrain from consuming meat and alcohol for at least seven days prior to visiting the temple.
Though spiritually fulfilling, the journey is extremely tiring and once the tour is over, one will prefer the luxurious elegance of comfortable retreat, perhaps such as that of Chaaya Wild Yala. As an added benefit, if you opt to reside at this Yala Sri Lanka hotel, the hotel itself may organize and co-ordinate your tour and add to the convenience of a well deserved holiday.
Located at the edge of the Yala National Park, the hotel, upon request, will also organize a number of other tours to witness the natural landscape and wildlife which roams about freely.
