Sera Falls

This beautiful Sera Ella fall, the subject of several poems, is situated in the Dumbara Jungle that is split into two sections, both 10m in height. Kitul Canal, from the Kaudagammana Mountain, and the Hunumadala River, from the Gonamada and Deyuthu Gammmaduwa mountains, flow in unison to form the Puwakpitiya River. This later joins Thelegam River, at which point the fall is created as the water tumbles down a protruding rock face, visible from Dumbara Jungle.

The fall flows all year around and is at its fullest during the monsoon season, between November and March. The name of the fall derives from the ‘Sera’ species of fish that inhabits the water.

The fall is located in the village of Pothatawela, near Laggala in Matale District’s Laggala PSD. From Matale or Lagalla, travel to Illukumbura.

Thelgamuwa Oya

Thelgamuwa Oya is a stream that flows from the Knuckles Massif of central Sri Lanka, a series of hills so called due to their likening of the knuckes on a fist. It is a part of the beautiful streams and waterfalls that form a network in that area. The Knuckles Range was called the Dumbara Range originally, and the surrounding area is still called Dumbara. The stream runs through Dumbara, close to a forest cabin dormitory called the Dumbara Wana Nivahana located in Ilukambura, which provides accomodation for campers visiting the forest reserve that occupies the area.

The stream is one of the most amazing freshwater streams of Sri Lanka, with clean gushing water and many natural rock pools. Some of the still pools are deep, while others are shallow making them perfect as bathing or swimming holes. The shady hollows formed as the stream flows under trees, bubbling over rocks, makes Thelgamuwa Oya a very relaxing place to visit.

Temple of the Sacred Tooth

Sri Dalada Maligawa or the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka. It is located in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, which houses the relic of the tooth of the Buddha. Since ancient times, the relic has played an important role in local politics because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country. Kandy was the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings and is a World Heritage Site mainly due to the temple.

Bhikkhus of the two chapters of Malwatte and Asgiriya conduct daily worship in the inner chamber of the temple. Rituals are performed three times daily: at dawn, at noon and in the evenings. On Wednesdays, there is a symbolic bathing of the relic with an herbal preparation made from scented water and fragrant flowers called Nanumura Mangallaya. This holy water is believed to contain healing powers and is distributed among those present.

Knuckles Forest

The Knuckles Mountain Range also called the Knuckles Massif; a bio-diversity hotspot located in the districts of Kandy and Matale in the Central Province of Sri Lanka.

The area situated above 1500 m was declared a climatic reserve in 1873 and a conservation forest in 2000, later a National Man & Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site in 2009. It is today considered as one of South Asia’s important sites for the conservation of montane tropical forest habitats.
