A very old catholic shrine in Sri Lanka. Someone bares similar resemblance to Lourdes. Lovely to see the different cultures in Sri Lanka

This is a old popular Catholic Church in Srilanka. During the feast lots of pilgrims visit this Church from all over the world.

The surrounding area of the church has become very much urbanised. I can still recall the woodland like surroundings and the forest beyond when I last visited the holy shrine in early seventies. On this occasion, the time we visited the shrine was almost midday and it had less pilgrims thus providing us with an easy access.

No word to express how I feel about this location which is filled with all kind of blessings from our lady Madhu. We were lucky to visit and participate with feast held at Madhu shrine this time of the year and we are hoping to visit our lady Madhu on August. Thank you Amma.

A visit to the Madhu shrine is the main attraction in the area and of great religious significance to Catholics.

Turn off to the church from the Madawachchiya-Mannar road. 10 kim to the shrine from the turn off. Signs well posted, so you cannot miss it. Early morning masses daily. Sunday masses are held till 11.30 am.

The major Catholic Church in Sri Lanka. People visit this place with so much faith and they believe that miraculous things happens after worshiping at this place. Non Catholics also can visit the place and experience the church and how the Catholics do their prayers. The church is located in dense jungle and survived the civil war which lasted for 3 decades. Now the access roads are very well built.

September is a great month to visit the Madhu Shrine. Lovely weather. Rainy in the evening and sunny in the morning. Large number of devotees present BUT not crowded. We were able to hear Bi-lingual Mass, pray at the shrines and chapel. Natural Bees Honey available right along the main road. However, prices must be researched prior to visit to ensure a good bargain. Our wish to spot a straying Sloth Bear along the main road did not materialize. Area residents say its a common happening. Very Good visit.
