Description

Amongst the amazing things in this world, is the beautifully handcrafted Sri Lankan marionette – declared by UNESCO to be a world heritage in 2018. The history of this great art takes us back to Master Podi Sirina who performed an act for the prince of Wales in 1922, which enchanted him.

Throughout the history of puppetry in Sri Lanka, Ambalangoda has been known as the land of puppets but, in fact, it was Balapitiya that provided the most fertile grounds for nurturing this skill, and it’s only true to form that a beautiful museum would be erected there.
