A very good collection of traditional masks. Ambalangoda is famous for its traditional masks. We also got to see the workshop and people carving, painting and decorating the masks. Great art work!

We visited this smaller shop and factory with our local guide and though it's not as famous as others nearby it is well worth a visit. It was very interesting to watch the cavers at work and look through the range of masks. The prices...More
