History

The Mahavansa records that in 543 BC, Prince Vijaya landed at Tambapanni, now known as Kudrimalai Point (Horse Point), establishing the Sinhalese kingdom and founding the Sinhala nation. This marked a significant chapter in Sri Lanka’s history. In 1905, recognizing its cultural and ecological importance, the area became a sanctuary.

Then, in 1938, it gained National Park status, further preserving its natural beauty and heritage. Kudrimalai, or Horse Point, is also significant in ancient maritime history. In 47 AD, a subject of Emperor Claudius visited the area, blown off course by monsoon winds. This event highlights the region’s strategic location and interactions with other civilizations. Moreover, the local king dispatching envoys to Rome during Pliny’s time underscores its historical connections and diplomatic engagements.
