ns – Pollonnaruwa is a classic example of the irrigation technology, architecture and art that was predominant in the 7th century. It also provides an insight to the Buddhist and Hindu culture present at that time.
- Kaudulla National Park – The park is bordering on one of the irrigation tanks built by an ancient King of Sri Lanka, Mahasen. This is probably the main reason why it allures wild animals and birds. Kaudullla is a popular tourist destination because you can see many wild elephants at close range.
