    We built this two story building as an escape for my father who’s a Buddhist monk. He has not stayed longer but he knows that the place is available if he wants to come. This place is located in Thanamalwila area in the center of a two acres farm land. It’s equipped with a patio, bathroom, and tiled floor. Great for a couple to live and do some gardening. There’s a River just a block away. 10 min to Lunugamwehera Safari.

    Travelers would have a place to stay, enjoy a meal, and travel to nearby safari, and beach areas in Hambantota. Travelers will immediately notice the simple nature of the place as it is initially built for my dad who is a Theravada Buddhist monk. This is basically his place of living when he is visiting the town. It is newly constructed to make it look like a simple monk lodging upstairs. However, the place in itself is not a temple. No monks are living in it. There is a temple in the village too, and travelers can explore the local temple and observe its functions and shrines. Additionally, travelers have the opportunity to visit Buduruwagala temple just two towns away, nearly 34 km from Thanamalwila where the house is based. Buduruwagala is an ancient buddhist temple in Sri Lanka. The complex consists of seven statues and belongs to the Mahayana school of thought. The statues date back to the 10th century.
    A workawayer would see that the place is not a cultural center. It is simply located in a village in Sri Lanka. The locals are born Buddhists, that means, they do not practice much of Buddhism at all. They don't speak English. They are not in a tourist town. A small number of locals visit the temple to offer meals daily as their turn comes. There is a school nearby: the Kithulkote School. Workawayer can visit the school and converse with the English teacher and volunteer to teach English if they feel like doing so. No obligation. Anything else, please email and ask, I will be happy to provide details as needed.
