WHAT to discover

Take a tour to the Kande Viharaya Temple to visit historic site in Dharga Town.

It’s better to go to this place on a day trip or just for few hours its not far away (only 20min), instead of staying there because it is a really loud, busy and touristic place.

Eventually, you will be happy that you can come back to our quiet paradise in Kosgoda.
