This is Ethugala , a rock that gets its name having the shape of an elephant. Situated about the middle of the city, this is the land mark of Kurunegala.
The wewa is one of my two favorite spots in the area. A wewa is a man made water reservoir with the purpose of storing rain water and distributing to the paddy fields in the dry seasons. These were built more than a thousand years a go. Their technology still marvels today's engineers.
Paddy and Coconut are the main crops of Kurunegala. Coconut was grown in big scale, but seems to be fading gradually.
Well, there are so many interesting places in Kurunegala, but even having lived there for five years, I've not been to many of them. When I do, I'll post about them too.
