Ampara district is known among its regional experts to be the water-rich district that has a vast number of man-made water bodies and adjacent greens. These mind-blowing tanks were built throughout Sri  Lankan engineering history which has been influenced by our ancient kings and colonial leaders. Most of these tanks have been renovated recently by the Department of irrigation in order to cater to the farmer's needs around the vicinity. However, these tanks are becoming weekend getaway hotspots for Sri Lankans who travel around the country.
