Kechimalai Mosque

The Kechimalai Mosque is said to have been built where the first recorded Muslim settlement in Sri Lanka was established by gem traders in the year 1024. Completely white except for its green doors, this historic place of worship is the focus for a major Eid-ul-Fitr festival at the end of Ramadan, and draws thousands of visitors every year. Its position on a headland means that it provides terrific views of the ocean and surrounding areas that one can get from atop the headland.
