Overview
Unawatuna is a small coastal strip with a fabulous beach and near the beach atop a hill stands a gleaming white dagoba. Thousands of pilgrims come to the dagoba to worship and offer poojas. They offer rice in the hope of rain in the time of harvest. Most offer a handful of rice from their daily meal and others purchase a bag of rice and coconuts as offerings.
This rice is pounded and mixed with coconut milk and treacle and made into a special porridge which is then offered to the deities at the devalaya and given as alms to thousands of devotees who trek to the devalaya for this alms-giving, also known as the Maha Deva Dana or Kiri Dana. Fisher folk save and offer part of their earnings called ‘Goda kotasa’ seeking protection during their forays into the ocean.
