Kirinda Rajamaha Viharaya is located on top of the rock on a fine beach and most beautiful place. This had been built by the king Kavantissa.

There are no places for accommodation but at the Yala Junction you can find.

Kirinda is a small fishing village blessed with a pretty beach, spectacular views and a charming history, yet it is bypassed by most visitors. There is a rocky outcrop from which can be obtained some magnificent views of the desolate coast with its long stretch of sand dunes.
