In the small town of Aluthgama the energy of Buddha seems to be omnipresent. The city is not only important because of its location near the holy mountain, “Kande Vihara“, but also because of the largest seated Buddha figure of Sri Lanka, that towers above the temple and looks down on the small town. In Aluthgama, which is still relatively unexploited by tourism, you are also presented with many shopping opportunities.
