About Maturai Essence
“Matara” is a city in the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Currently it is a major commercial hub but it has a great historical and geographical attachment to spices.
In the 16th and 18th centuries, Matara was ruled by the Portuguese and the Dutch respectively where they built a massive fortress to guard the coast and the city. The city’s name Matara was derived from the mispronunciation of the word Matora by the Portuguese who called it “Maturai” in 1672. There was a key reason why both the Portuguese and the Dutch were interested in invading this small island Sri Lanka and to specifically locate themselves in Matara. It was the fact that it has the best weather, soil and the natural infrastructure to grow Cinnamon.
