Apè Gama theme park brings to life the traditional village of Sri Lanka in an era prior to colonisation by the west. The park is a major attraction to both local and foreign tourists, and children in particular. Anyone who wants to experience the calm and simple village lifestyle amidst an agricultural setting will step through its portals into the past, and walk among those iconic historical characters who lived and served in the community a long time ago. They continue to live in Apè Gama surrounded by the same vernacular architecture, seemingly unaffected by the hubbub of the world outside. Ancient practices of the Hath Koralè are carried out by the Apè gama inhabitants who themselves hail from remote parts of the country where these traditions are still alive.
