Kurullangala


Kurullangala


Description

Kurullangala is a rock with ancient paintings located in the Uva Province. Uva Province is an area where a mystery of the Sri Lankan dynasty is hidden.

There are two main reasons why this rock got the name Kurullangala
  1. One of them is the rare bird species that are difficult to see even in Sri Lanka. It is said to be the smallest species of bird and to make a sharp noise.
  2. The paintings on the rock are two of the reasons why it is called Kurullangala. These paintings are located about 100 meters below the top of the mountain.
Such paintings are still not found anywhere in Sri Lanka. These include peacock paintings, bird feathers, handwriting, striped patterns, and indistinguishable faded paintings. There is also an image of a reptile with a pointed back and tail that has faded from the head.

The distinctive feature of the paintings on this rock plateau is the subtle technique used for the decoration of the paintings. Meanwhile, the patterns around the figures are decorated using circular squares. Also, the colors used have been protected from the sun for centuries. A reddish-purple plant has been used for this purpose. Also, Kurullangala paintings do not have a direct influence on any of the ancient paintings around the world.

Today Kurullangala has about 100 paintings that have survived various degenerations. These paintings may have been drawn by a group of people who settled in this country a long time ago. Surprisingly, the paintings on this rock are about 20 feet above the place where it is very difficult to climb.
