Tank & Temple #13
Sunrise over the Basawankulama reservoir, or tank, with the Ruwanwelisaya in the distance. The Basawankulama, built in 400 BC by King Pandukabhaya is thought to be Sri Lanka’s oldest reservoir. The Ruwanwelisaya is relatively newer, built in 140 BC by King Dutugemunu. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines. My story, The First Kingdom of Lanka, ran in the February 2017 issue.
