Adjacent to the Keerimalai Sea, the specialty of this pond is that its water is unsalted. In short, no salt at all. Although a large body of water has flowed into the sea from this pond, it is reported that its volume will not decrease. There is a beautiful legend about this Keerimalai pond.

Keerimalai pond history: This pond has become a miracle for two mice that lived in India. Although the trunks of these two mice are human, their faces are animalistic. One catfish has a muzzled face and the other has a horse face. In the meantime, they have received a message that there is a pond in Sri Lanka that will immediately turn their faces back to human form. So these two mice came across the sea to bathe in this pool. Legend has it that their faces later became real human beings. Many Hindus believe that bathing in this pool cures various skin ailments.

It's okay to go here and take a shower to protect these beautiful places. Bathing in this pool is open only from 6 am to 6 pm.

Delft Island is the only island in Sri Lanka where wild horses can be seen. The reason for this is that it was an island where horses were brought to the country by the colonial people for various purposes and later allowed to go wild. That is, not taking proper care of it. Later, the animals became extinct and became dwarfed due to lack of proper nutrition. (Some say horses are also part of a mixed animal). Delft Island is located in the Palk Strait of the Indian Ocean.
