Overview
The oldest recorded Moorish settlement in Sri Lanka, Beruwala is home to the oldest mosque in the island. Just north of the hotel colony, the Kechimalai Mosque is built on the spot where the first Muslim traders from the Middle East landed and settled in 1024 AD.
The mosque with its white minarets, out on a rocky headland on the northern edge, is the town’s most significant landmark. This is an exquisite location from which to watch the sunset, with views over the bay and light house. The mosque is the focus for a major Id-ul-Fitr festival at the end of Ramadan which draws around 50,000 pilgrims from all over the island.
