Anamaduwa is a typical Sri Lankan village surrounded by a vast network of ancient irrigation tanks that, just like natural lakes, attract a variety of bird life and support the locals that live nearby. The village and tanks are flanked by evergreen dry zone forest attracting deer, giant squirrel as well as wild boar. It’s predominantly a Buddhist area and as a result small and rarely visited temples can be found nearby, such as the Paramakanda Rock Monastery. This is home to intricate frescos and glistening shrines. The Mudhouse, a cluster of wonderful little mud houses, has put Anamaduwa on the map and is most definitely the place to stay here. This is an ideal stop for families.
