Katirgama Ashram and Babaji Koil temple

View Image Gallery of Katirgama Shrine

The holiest shrine to both Hindus and Buddhists in Sri Lanka is the Muruga temple complex at Katirgama, 40 km north of the southernmost town in Sri Lanka, Hambatota, deep in the forest, next to the Manickaganga River. Every year thousands of pilgrims come to Katirgama to seek the blessings of Lord Muruga at this powerful shrine and to enjoy the pristine natural environment. Babaji Nagaraj came here in search of his Guru, and found the Siddhar Boganathar. Under his guidance, for four years he learned dhyana and jnana and attained Nirvikalpa Samadhi, with the blessings of Muruga. He also realized that he is an avatar of Muruga.

A small shrine has been erected on the very spot where Babaji sat, under a banyan tree, with the Siddhar Boganathar to attain enlightenment. It is located just inside the gate to the Theivani Amman Kovil. Pujas are conducted there daily by the priests. Devotees are encouraged to meditate and practice Yoga in front of the small shrine, which contains granite murthis of Babaji and Siddhar Boganathar and a Muruga vel.

Devotees are welcome to visit the Babaji Ashram, which is a 10 minutes walk away from the temple, behind the CTB Government Transport Depot, and the new bridge. It is located on the east side of the Manickaganga River. It is an ideal place for meditation. Contact in advance:
