About Sorabora Wewa

Sorabora Wewa is an ancient reservoir in Mahiyangana, Badulla District Sri Lanka. It is thought to have been constructed during the reign of King Dutugemunu (161 BC – 137 BC) by a giant named Bulatha. In the ancient past, this tank was known as the ‘Sea of Bintenna‘.

I visited Sorabora wewa on the month of April 2017. Thanks to Mr. Vivek we were able to capture some awsome images.

This rock cut deep canal acts as the sluice for the tank. Currently the tank and this ancient structure have been declared as archaeological protected monuments.

 

 

This dam covers vast acres and while we walking through we found very unique trees with heavy timbers. These type of tree could find in Mahiyanganaya only.
