Introducing Monaragala

Dripping with green foliage, the centre of Monaragala nestles beneath Peacock Rock, a round-topped hunk of forest-covered mountain. The town then straggles 3km west along Wellawaya Rd (A4) to Hulanduwa Junction, where the road meets the A22 to Bibile and Badulla.

Mainly seen as a transit point for reaching Arugam Bay, the town is nonetheless a friendly and attractive place once you get off the busy main road. It’s also an alternative place from which to visit the impressive statues and ruins at Maligawila.
