Kalutara is the administrative center of Sri Lanka Western Province. The city got its name from one of the four biggest rivers in the country – Kalu Ganga. A huge snow-white stupa Gangatilaka Vihara is located on the bank of Kalu Ganga. It is the only hollow stupa in Sri Lanka, so it is possible to enter it and explore from inside.
The ancient Maha Bodhi tree is also one of Kalutara main attractions. The direct descendant of the tree under which Buddha attained enlightenment grows in Anuradhapura, it is strictly guarded, so no one can touch the sacred tree. Our Maha Bodhi also originates from the tree sacred to all Buddhists, however you can touch it!
