History of the Sembuwaththa Lake

During the colonial period, the British started cultivating tea here. The area around the lake was used as a polo stadium by British people.

A gold mug has emerged from a fountain near the tea factory. It’s said that Kankani who worked in the plantation, had fled to India with “Gold mug”. Kovil made by his son the place where the fountain was located.


Legends say that this is how the name “Sembuwattta” is derived. Visitors can still see the ruins of the Kovil. Sembuwatta is confined to those who live there.

In 2005, The Sembuwatta lake and the surrounding area were properly maintained.  A large number of summer houses and pool have been built around the lake and made popular around tourists.
