Initially claimed by the Portuguese, the city was conquered by the Dutch in 1644 and remained under their sovereignty until 1796 when the Dutch were finally overthrown by the British. Negombo was one of the most important sources of cinnamon during the Dutch era, and the visitors can still discover remnants of that period while exploring the city.

The river’s clear waters spring from the heart of the wilderness reserve and tumble through a rocky gorge just above Kithulgala. The rafting site had a bout of fame when it was chosen as a prime location in the filming of David Lean's 1957 award-winning film 'Bridge on the River Kwai.'
