Kudumbigala Monastery

Kudumbigala Monastery lies 18 kilometres from Panama and 27 kilometres away from the Kumana Village, close to Arugam Bay.

Kudumbigala monastic complex was built in 246 BC, during the time of King Devanampiyatissa. It was first established as a refuge for the Buddhist monks who wanted to get away from the busy Cities. Archaeologists had recovered over 200 rock caves belonging to this forgotten monastery.
