Overview
Kirinda is a small but beautiful village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 10 km south of Tissa and close to Kataragama. It has a beautiful beach and a Buddhist shrine built on a huge round rock. The area is also close to the Great and Little Basses reefs which provide some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the country.
Kirinda was used as a land base by Arthur C. Clarke’s party when diving for the Great Basses wreck (Treasures of the Reef). One of the most well-known attractions in Kirinda is the statue of Queen Vihara Maha Devi, the heroine of the nation and mother of the hero of the nation, King Dutugemunu. This is situated on the spot where she is said to have landed after being set adrift on the sea from Kelaniya.
