Event Details

Join Ameena Hussein on a fascinating journey from the 21st century to the 14th. Arriving in Puttalam in 1344 on pilgrimage to Sri Pada, the legendary Moroccan traveller Ibn Batutta later recorded his adventures in The Rihla. Almost 700 years on, Ameena retraced his route, meeting a multitude of characters, unearthing remarkable tales, and delving into the history of her own minority community: Muslims who have lived on the island for a thousand years.
