These are not naturally created pools. Years ago, the people of this place in the village had built a Squeeze the poles. This is the only place in Sri Lanka where white coconut coir is stale. You can see some of the pools created like that when you come here.
You can bathe here. That's what a lot of people come from.
But you have to be careful of the ikirians here.
Ikirio was not in these pools, they were on the rock in front. People don't bother because they're stuck. But if we step on them, we can get injured by those cracks in our legs.
