    Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

    Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is an orphanage, nursery and captive breeding ground for wild Asian elephants located at Pinnawala village. Pinnawala situated northwest of the town of Kegalla. It is located at halfway between the present capital Colombo and the ancient royal residence Kandy. It was established in 1975 by the Sri Lanka wildlife department in a 25 acre coconut property near the Maha Oya River. In 2011, there were 88 elephants, including 37 males and 51 females from 3 generations, living in Pinnawala. The main attraction is the opportunity to observe the bathing elephants from the broad river bank as the herd interact socially, bathing and playing. Visitors to the park can view many different aspects of the care and daily routine of the elephants, such as bottle feeding of elephant calves, feeding of all other elephants, and bathing in the Ma Oya (River). There are twenty elephants have been born since 1984, and the orphanage has the largest herd of captive elephants in the world. While most of the elephants are healthy, one is blind and one, named Sama, has lost her front left leg due to a landmine.


    The last capital of the Shinhala king, Kandy is remarkable for the natural beauty of its setting in a peaceful wooded valley overlooking a vast artificial lake. Strategically nestled amidst three mountain ranges and known as the gateway to the hill country, Kandy was initially built in this location as a natural fortress against attack. Kandy was not an easy target for the foreign invaders who could gain the control of coastal areas of the island without too much loss. Kandy’s main architectural monuments date mainly from the 19th Century when King Sri Vikrama Rajasinha, the last King of Kandy, constructed many new buildings. At the time of the eventual surrender of Kandy to British Rule in 1815, King Rajasinha was captured, imprisoned and finally deported to India where he died in 1832. The Palace buildings, Shrines and the British period building give it a special Character, while religious importance of the Tooth relic and the annual procession of the Dalada Perahera contribute a dynamism and unique culture importance to the historical hill capital.
    The geographical location of the Kandy was very important in creating a natural defence strategy. The city was built in a valley surrounded by three mountain ranges: Udawattakele to the east, The Hanthana range on one side and the Bahiravakanda the other. The river Mahaweli, flowing toward the north-west, turns back on itself towards south-west, forming triangular boundary. This natural system of defence was very useful in protecting the city for many attempted invasions by the Portuguese, Dutch and British.
