A giant Sri Lankan elephant crosses a beautiful human made tank


Polonnaruwa as it is an ancient part of Sri Lanka with close ties to elephants across its history. An ancient capital city of the old ages of Ceylon when kings ruled the country and built many tanks and reservoirs. Parakrama Samudraya and Minneria Wewa are two massive tanks built during the ancient Sri Lankan civilizational era. This giant elephant has wandered away from the herd and now seeks to cross the lake with style like it knows everything about the lake.

This lake now serves as a primary water source for all animals and farmers across the area as it was designed centuries ago. The engineering and the amount of work used to be successful in creating such massive tanks cannot be compared to what we can achieve with the advancement of technologies. All the farming villages have their irrigation system linked to this magnificent tank that also helps all other wild animals to drink and bath without any human hindrances.

Furthermore, it shows how happy these giants are in the area, as all humans have learned to respect and love these elephants as they live around the ancient capital. These elephants freely roam across the region to enjoy the lavish surrounding and nature protected by the locals in the area. A lot of elephants are attracted to this area due to its special humanmade tank that covers a massive region. It shows the engineering and unity of humans the ancient Ceylon had several centuries ago.

Sri Lanka, the island of elephants

On the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, Elephants roam the streets and through village areas freely in many regions of the country. The small island nation is full of elephants that are loved by most of the inhabitants of the island. Most educated people in the country continually fight corruption and animal abuse. Especially they continue their resolve to show how important the treasures that elephants are to the state as Sri Lankan elephants are known as the largest and the strongest among Asian elephants.

However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts are happening that have caused casualties to both sides. They have set a lot of fences and electric fences with barriers around many villages and farmlands around national parks and many massive forest reserves. These elephants often run into traps and wells placed along with farms for water supply.

We humbly invite you to join us with a journey full of love and help to our treasured wild elephants in the paradise island of Sri Lanka.
