If you happen to visit good old Hikkaduwa then do be sure to check out the temple on top of a lonely island that’s just two kilometers north of the town. This temple has a very special back-story. According to the legend of this holy place, it seems that anyone who has been an unfortunate victim of robbery can come here to seek some much needed justice for those wrong-doers.
When you visit the temple, remember to come prepared with an offering of the exclusive oil that is concocted using chilli and pepper spices. Visitors must use this special oil to light lamps once they reach their homes again and participate in the recitation of a mantra in order to successfully revenge against those who took from them. Once this ritual has been practiced consistently, the thieves will be brought into the public eye after their own lives are impinged with suffering. While the temple is indeed a fascinating place given its powers to curse those who dare commit such heinous acts, it is also part of yet another story which resides in the hearts of millions of Sri Lankans to this day.
It remains a reminder of the sad events which took place on the 26th of December 2004. This temple actually survived the ferocious waves which hit the coast area that fateful day and further highlights its immense power. It also makes for an exciting journey to the island by speed boat! Whatever the Hotel Offers Sri Lanka has, what’s more serene that a gorgeous view of the sunset and that’s exactly what you will find on the island coast if you are brave enough to leave your luxury room at Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon to make this voyage.
