'Pattunagala', Yala, where 20 odd Japanese tourists were swept away by the Tsunami of 2004.

 The memorial for the victims.
The Tsunami 0f December 24,2004, caught these Japanese tourists unawares in their place of rest. The building housing them collapsed and 20 of them were swept away into the roaring sea. A large rock named 'Pattunagala' stands sentinel at this site from time immemorial.
