The drive along the southern crescent of the bay of Beruwala leads the visitor along an ancient road with remnants of old houses of the Dutch period, a Christian Church of St. Lazarus, dated 1901 and the Mosque of high antiquarian value at the very tip of the bay, where the breakwater begins. This Mosque stands majestically on a kabook hill. It provides a nearly 360-degree panorama which includes both sea and land, and especially the old harbour, which could have moored the many hundred ships of the Chinese fleet in 1402 and after.
