Handicrafts, Ambalangoda

Affording an opportunity to pick up masks and puppets from a number of handicraft shops in the area, the town is also famous for other handicrafts such as hand woven cotton, finely carved wooden doors, screens and lintels.

Masks are hand made in this town for certain traditional dance rituals that have existed since medieval times. ‘Kolams’ are stories mocking Sri Lankan colonial life, and their masks reflect the peculiar humour of these dances. ‘Sannis’ are more ancient devil dancing masks used in a type of exorcism ceremony to heal people of persisting illnesses believed to be inflicted by demons. ‘Raksha’ masks, which are again “devils”, are used in festivals and processions.
