The space
Kurunegala was an ancient royal capital for 50 years, from the end of the 13th century to the start of the 14th century. It is at the junction of several main roads linking to other important parts of the country. It is about 94 km from Colombo and 42 km from Kandy, and 57 km to Matale. Kurunegala is a central city in Sri Lanka. It is directly connected to a large number of major cities and towns of the island. Kurunegala can be reached by railway on the Northern railway line. Located at an altitude of 116 meters above sea level, Kurunegala is surrounded by coconut plantations and paddy fields. There are eight very noticeable large rocks that encircle and dominate the city. Kurunegala's rocks rise from the plain below and have characteristic names, six of which come from the animals that they are imagined to represent. The largest among them is Ethagala or the "Elephant Rock" (though the translation is actually tusker), reaches 325 meters. The shape of Ethagala resembles an elephant.
