Hambantota

Hambantota District is located on the southeastern coast of Sri Lanka, in the Southern Province. It has an area of 2,593 km and a very dry climate. The district capital is Hambantota town; the administrative headquarters are located there as well as the center of salt production. Other prominent towns include Tangalle, Ambalantota, Tissamaharama, and Beliatta.

Before modern development took place after the country gained independence in 1948, the agriculture in the district was characterized by sweden cultivation (chena or slash and burn), and to some extent paddy cultivation on non-irrigated land. In the highlands, kurakkan - a grain used to make an eatable paste - was cultivated along with other grains such as corn. Leonard Woolf's 'Village in the Jungle' provides a highly interesting and insightful account of the people, the land and issues of concern during the British Colonial period as he worked as an assistant government agent for Hambantota.
