Ampara | Bandaraduwa


Bandaraduwa, one of the adopted homes of Vedda community, who were displaced by the GalOya development project, is a forest reserve rich of bio diversity today. 

With the damming of the Gal Oya River in 1950s under the Gal Oya Development Scheme and with the creation of the Senanayake SamudrayamanyVedda settlements like Hennebedda, Gallobe, vanished. Some of them were re-settled in new settlement under the Gal Oya scheme, like Paragahakelle and Wavinna, while the rest opted to seek other pastures like Pollebedda, Bandaraduwa and even in Namal Oya.
