Mask making in Ambalangoda

Southern Sri Lanka is famed for its distinctive folk tales and craftsmanship. In Ambalangoda, a short drive south of the hotel, there are a pair of museums dedicated entirely to masks and puppetry. Used to stage folk tales or as part of traditional exorcism ceremonies, the masks take on many forms. After a tour of the museum you’ll also have a chance to see how the masks are crafted (and perhaps have a go making your own).
