    I am Duminda Alahakoon, 34 years old working as a freelance photographer and journalist. In the meantime I try to work with the farmers of the village and convince them on organic farming. If u wish to come n stay free you are welcome. Actullay There's is no regular time or dates you to work. If u want you can come n just chill out visiting village n meeting people. If you have something to teach that would be greatly appreciated. I can teach you making hand made soap. Let's try to do something useful.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The place is located in Rajanganaya, a pretty large farming community situated 36km off to south from ancient Anuradhapura city. Public transports are easiest way to reach us.

    Transport by trains-
    Trains from Colombo fort through Polgahawela and Maho junction need to get down from Thambuttegama railway station, or if you are coming from North like Jaffna, Mannar through Anuradhapura, also need get down from Thambuttegama railway station and 1/2km by tuk tuk or a walk to the bus stand near the Police station. From there get a bus (Rajanganaya yaya 4) like 7 km, get down at Rajanganaya yaya 4 school. We are just few walking meters away from there.

    Transports by buses-
    From Colombo, you need to take the bus (No 57 Via Ella Anuradhapura) and get down from Thambuttegama police station, from there follow the same way. Or if you are around Airport side or Negombo, get the bus (route no 87 Jaffna, Vavunia or No 04 Anuradhapura) coming from Colombo and get down from Rajanganaya Junction. From there get a bus to 5th miles post of Rajanganaya & contact us. Or if you are already in Anuradhapura, pls get bus (route no 57 Kurunegala), get down from near the Thambuttegama police station and take the bus Rajanganaya yaya 4 to get down from Rajanganaya yaya 4 school.

    Sight seeings-
    Here is not a touristic place though it's located in ancient Anuradhapura. But the history of Rajanganaya goes back to during the king periods. It's proven by some remains still alive from ancient livings around the village. The village is pretty big. But we are located in a most beautiful location of the area surrounded by two huge reservoirs, two rivers, some ancient archeological places and stretch of paddy fields. Most are paddy, vegetable and fruits farmers. From few beautiful view points in the village, you will see stunning views over the stretch of paddy fields, dotting tanks, and beautiful sunset over the green vegetations. If you take public transport from here easily can do a day visit to Anuradhapura, Mihintale, Thanthirimale Rock temple and Awukana Rock Buddha statue. And also you can do a bicycle ride to visit reservoirs, rivers, ancient temples & view points around the village.
