What a tank it is. It’s a must see by learning kids. The ancient work of ‘Bulatha Yodaya’ is amazing. All done with rock and stones. Feel proud of our ancestors.

It takes a few minutes by foot to reach the lake. You pass along many small stall offering "souvernirs" and other kitsch. At the lake you have a nice view and there is a number of boats offering tours on the lake.
