Kithulgala

April 3, 2010

Kithulgala was a calm ,quiet and sleepy village.The Kelani river flowed down the village.The mornings were beatiful with the mist around.Some years back,a team of foreigners came there.They were looking for a location to shoot a film.The name of the film was ”The Bridge over the River Kwai.”It was a true story.In the story there was a bridge.A train was running onthe  bridge It was carrying soldiers.The bridge was brown up by mistake.It happened during the Second  World War.

The film -makers liked the place.They built a bridge over the   river.They laid a track on it.Kitulgala is a popular  holyiday resort now.Many hotels and quest-houses have come up.Tourists  are there throughout the year.They come specially for rafting,water  sking and other water sports.
