Kiwlekada Wewa

Kiwlekada Wewa
Kiwlekada Wewa (Sinhala: කිවුලේකඩ වැව/කිවුල්කඩ වැව) is a reservoir situated in Anuradhapura District, Sri Lanka. 

This is believed to have functioned at the same time as Hurulu Wewa reservoir (Arumugam, 1969). Some ruins such as sluice structures have been found at the site (Arumugam, 1969).
The reservoir was restored in 1959 (Arumugam, 1969).

The reservoir
The bund of the reservoir is about 1,600 ft. long and the water is extending in an area of about 460 acres at its full supply level (Arumugam, 1969). It has two spills and two sluices (Arumugam, 1969).
