Ancient technologies, that date back to thousand years, leave us surprised at the knowledge and wisdom held by our ancestors. Among several other technologies, an ancient transport system that still remains in a modified form can be still experienced in several locations of Batticaloa. These ferries in these villages are motor operated unlike early days and are locally known as Paadhai and the boat ramps used for it are locally known as Thuraiyadi.
