CINNAMON PEELING

Cinnamon peeling is a specialized task. The process begins with peelers cutting the bulk of tender shoots from the cinnamon plantations. The first step is to remove the outer tissue of the stem to separate it from the inner stem by scraping it with an oval shaped small knife. Next, the peelers are seen rubbing a brass rod on the bark. This activity continues for some time until the bark is loosened from the hard wood.

KORATOTA RAJAMAHA VIHARAYA

Korathota, a little known village in the Kaduwela Divisional Secretariat, can boast of having the two oldest cave inscriptions discovered in the Colombo District. These historic cave inscriptions dating back 2000 years are seen at the Korathota Rajamaha Viharay. The focal points of the Korathota Rajamaha Viharaya are the historic cave inscriptions and the six caves, which show signs of having been the dwelling place of monks in early times. Five naturally formed caves, can be seen high up on the rock that bounds the temple premises. A long flight of steps, recently built, leads up to the caves. All these caves have the ‘kataram’ carving, which is a groove or channel cut along the top of the overhanging rock, to prevent water dripping into the caves.


NAWAGAMUWA DEVALAYA

Nawagamuwa Devale is important as a historic place of worship. Legend has it that the origin of this Pattini devale close to the Kelani river goes back to the early Anuradhapura period.According to a popular legend, when King Gajaba 1 (A.D. 114 – 136) came from India with 12,000 men as prisoners, bringing with him a Pattini anklet, he alighted at the landing place close to the devale. It is said that he built a devale, enshrined the anklet and held poojas here. This temple is a shrine dedicated to Goddess Pattini. Buddhists as well as non-Buddhists offer poojas to the deity with the intention of getting blessings for children and pregnant mothers.
