LAKGALA ROCK

Location


What you can do

Laggala is derived from the Sinhala term “Elakke Gala”, which means Target Rock. Laggala served as a watchtower for King Ravana's army. Geographically, this is the highest part of the northern region of Rāvana’s city. The top of Laggala is flat as that is believed to have resulted from being hit by the Brahmasthram weapon after Lord Rama had fired it from Dunuvila for killing Ravana on this rock.
