Gampaha – A vibrant potpourri of cultures

Negombo, the central city of coastal Gampaha is known as the little Rome with many old Roman Catholic Church peaks kissing the sky line. The churches, the fort and the Hamilton canal are the structural remnants of a once vibrant merchant city while Baila and Kaffringha music, nativity plays and passion plays miscellanies of once a heavily colonized culture.

As the sea disappears in the horizon with it vanishes the colonial effect opening doors to a very different Gampaha of Buddhist roots and of traditional agricultural and industrial means.

The Muthurajawela Wet land Reserve and NARA Mangrove Sanctuary in the Gampaha district are two of the main coastal wetland reserves in the country while Horagolla Forest reserve is the smallest forest reserve in the country.
