Madhu Festival and the Feast of St. Anne

The church of Our Lady of Madhu a revered and famous Roman Catholic shrine in the Mannar district, has a history of over 400 years. The shrine is a traditional pilgrimage and worship venue for Sri Lankan Catholics. The beautiful Madhu church is surrounded by jungles in mannar and is famed for its miracles and healing power of its soil. An annual festival originally celebrated on the 2nd of July marking the feast of the visitation.

However the feast is now celebrated on August 15th as Catholics celebrate the day of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven at this time and draws huge crowds from all over the country. The period is conveniently set during school holidays which enables families to make the much awaited and planned trip to this sacred venue every year.
