Pilawala Tamarind Tree
The Pilawala Tamarind Tree (also known as Pilawala Siyambala Tree) situated in Pilawala village in Kandy District is believed to be one of the Historic and Ancient Trees in Sri Lanka. The tree is located on the wayside of Sirimalwatta-Yakgahapitiya-Menikhinna road near the junction between Pilawala Maha Vidyalaya and its playground.
