Constructed during a time where state of the art technology was still in the process of being discovered, Batticaloa’s Kallady Bridge is one of the landmarks in the Eastern Province. Located close to the bridge is the Sri Lanka Ayurveda resort of Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa. This Sri Lanka resort would be an ideal place to reside in during your holiday in this part of the world.
Built in the year 1924, the Kallady Bridge remains a true testament to the engineering brilliance of the early 20th century. Facilitating the transportation needs of the locals, the bridge has evolved over the years and has won the hearts of many as being a popular tourist hotspot in Batticaloa. Referred to as the ‘Lady Manning Bridge’, this masterpiece was once the longest bridge in the country before the works of modern day technology superseded it. A replica of the old bridge has now been constructed for the benefit of commuters and all those travelling within the district and its neighbouring cities and attractions.
