Ambalangoda City

Mask carving is an indigenous tradition in Ambalangoda, a coastal town 34 km north of Galle. This is a privately-owned museum where a large collection of masks of various kinds is showcased. Nearby is the mask workshop where you can see artisans making masks step by step. There is a guide who will explain you everything about various kinds of masks. It was very interesting to learn about the masks and the history and cultural significance attached to different ones in the collection.
