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:
