Perimiyankulama Wewa

Perimiyankulama Wewa (Sinhala: පෙරිමියන්කුලම වැව) is a small reservoir situated in Perimiyankulama village in Anuradhapura District, Sri Lanka. 

Perimiyankulama Wewa is the modern named used to identify this tank (Paranavitana, 1983). This is conjectured to be the same as the Gamani-vapi or (Gamanitissa-vapi) built by King Pandukabhaya (4th century B.C.), the first king of Sri Lanka (Nicholas, 1963; Paranavitana, 1983).
