Welcome To Thissamaharama!

Tissamaharama is one of the most pleasant towns in the southern coast. Tissa has one of the most beautiful handcrafted water-tank (reservoir) placed in a remarkable picture where bird habitants provides the scenic backdrop to the town. Located in the southern area of the island, Tissa was considered as a sacred place where Sinhalese patriots fled to rally support against marauding Dravidian invaders from Southern India. Known by the name of Mahagama (great town), it was one of the principal settlements of the southern province of Ruhuna. Mahagama was founded in the third century BC by a brother of the King Devanam Piya Tissa of Anuradhapura, & later rose to prominence under King Kavantissa, father of the hero of the nation, King Dutugamunu of Ruhuna.

Current Tissa is a bustling city with the main street lined with banks, shops & small coffee shops and kiosks. Refreshing breeze from the large reservoir sweeps the town. The town neighbors a green bright paddy fields (rice fields). In the midst of paddy fields stands most impressive of Tissa's dagobas (stupas). The combination of cluster of dagobas & two beautiful tanks lend Tissa a certain distinction & a sense of history making it in sharp contrast with the other towns of southern coast.
