Waterfall, Sabaragamuwa. Sri Lanka.

The province of Sabaragamuwa was named so in ancient times because of the presence of a village of Gypsies (Sabara - Sinhalese). It also had the name 'Denawaka' in Sinhalese literature. It aquired the name Rathnapura because of the presence of gems in its soil. It is the most beautiful part if Sri Lanka. Rivulets, streams, rocky mountains and innumerable waterfalls with an abundant flora and fauna make it unique. This picture shows one of its numerous unnamed water-falls.
