Washing linen and bathing, Kelany Ganga.

The daily ritual of washing up and bathing in the Kelany Ganga is a time-old pastime of the villagers in this area. This river was navigable. The Portuguese, Dutch and British conquerors would travel up to Kosgamam by boat from Colombo. This was the first part of the journey to the Kingdom of Kandy.
