Unawatunne beach and glass-bottomed boats, Galle, Sri Lanka.

'Wee-bissa' - Paddy store, Koggala, Sri Lanka.

The paddy store of ancient times is made of clay and wicker netting. It preserved the paddy in a dry state for almost an year. This is seen before the museum building at the ancestral land of the famous author, Mr. Martin Wickremasinghe. His famous novels 'Madol Duwa', 'Gam Peraliya', 'Yugaanthay', 'Kaliyugaya', and a compilation of short stories 'Magul Gedara' are famous.
