Uswetakeiyawa, Sri Lanka.

At the evening of the day, I arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport flown from Tokyo.

And I went to the booked hotel in the Uswetakeiyawa Vilage with a local guide.

Uswetakeiyawa is a really little fishing village in Wattala Pradeshiya Sabha, Gampaha District, Western Province. It is located on the west coast, just 20 minutes away from the airport.

I found two small shrines; probably they are Hinduism and Christian.

Hamilton Canal

Sri Lanka’s remarkable canal legacy is due to the hydraulic expertise of the Island’s early civilisation and the homeland expertise of Dutch colonists. The British neglected canals for modern methods of shifting goods and carrying out trade road and rail. Nevertheless, the important Hamilton Canal was constructed between Colombo and Negombo, which is now undergoing rehabilitation as an ecotourism destination.

On the outskirts of the village, Saint Mary's Church is there.

Church interior, it is a strange feeling of the church.
