The Ravana cave tunnels prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. These tunnels served as a quick means of transport through the hills & also as a secret passage.

Existing tunnel mouths are situated - Isthripur at Welimada, Ravana cave at Bandarawela, Senapitiya at Halagala, Ramboda, Labookelle, Wariyapola /Matale, and Sitakotuwa/Hasalaka.

RAVANA CAVE  

This is known as the Bridge in the Sky. One end of this curved 9 arch Demodara bridge is a tunnel. As the train passes the station the railway line loops upon itself, encircles an adjoining hill top and passes through a tunnel underneath the station which is around 75 – 100 feet below the station. The railway loop was designed and built during the British Colonial period in the shape of a turban, this railroad loop is a unique feature in the hill country. The rail track goes around the mountain in a loop and through a tunnel beneath the Demodara Railway Station.
