granite assemblage
witness to men and tales
war, warrior and other instruments
of cyclic obliteration
marking not the passing of the inconsequential
but just the fact of passage
and the quiet call to the elements —
‘Come, play!’


Kimbulagala (literally ‘Crocodile Rock’) located near Kebithigollewa is said to have been an assembly point for troops used by Nandimitra, one of the 10 great generals serving King Dutugemunu.
