Hambantota lies on the southern coast of Sri Lanka and is home to a new international port development. When the Kingdom of Ruhuna was established it received many travellers and traders from Siam, China and Indonesia who sought anchorage in the natural harbour at Godawaya, Ambalantota. The ships or large boats these traders travelled in were called "Sampans" and "thota" means port or anchorage so the port where sampans anchor came to be known as "Sampantota" (which is now known as Godawaya). After some time the area became to be called "Hambantota".
Sri Lanka's first Dry Zone Botanical Garden is being established at the village of Mirijjawila. The coastal line of Hambantota is also dominated by shimmering expansive saltpans that stretch along bordering the main road for about 15km.
