Welcome to Ambalangoda

Ambalangoda is a sweaty, workaday town, which is completely overshadowed by nearby Hikkaduwa as a tourist destination. The main reason for visiting is to dig under the surface of the Sri Lankan souvenir scene and discover the magical meanings behind the ubiquitous ‘devil’ masks. Genuine devil dances, which drive out spirits causing illness, still occur irregularly in the hinterland villages
