Lahugala National Park

Lahugala National Park

The road en-route to Arugam Bay takes you through the Lahugala National Park, where one has a good opportunity to view elephants and a variety of water birds and raptors. During the wet season, a few individual elephants maybe seen around the Lahugala tank, while larger numbers tend to congregate in the dry season which spans from July through to September.

Located within the Lahugala National Park, lie the ruins of the Magul Maha Vihara, which was a monastery complex built by King Dhatusena in the 5th century AD. You can see a stupa, an image house and a moonstone which contains elephants and their mahouts at this site, which was partially restored in the 14th century. Today, this ruined temple complex is surrounded by jungle and is still to be excavated in full
