I recently visited my old place in Panadura. I did not forget to hang around Lake Bolgoda, a man- made canal from the colonial times. Around lake Bolgoda is a very sensitive wetland echo system with a significant bio diversity.
Here is a villager, a fisher probably, paddling his canoe. This reservoir is abundant in local and introduced fresh water fishes and prawns.
A glimpse of the flora and fauna about the lake for you.
This is a wooden platform used by people cross the canal. It's operated by a rope suspended on a pull. The passengers just have to pull the rope to keep the platform moving.
This bridge was recently built replacing a similar platform.
