The building was in the thick of the unrest and was severely damaged during the 'time of troubles'.
In the meantime Kirupaharan emigrated to Germany and became a tycoon in the container shipping field at Hamburgh. He is also a Senator in Germany.
When he visited Hartley after the 2009s he promised a brand new building for the damaged hostel. The old hostel building was pulled down and this is the result. I heard that he had also started an orphanage at Thunnaalai. All of us who were with him appreciate his magnanimity and thank him from the bottom of our hearts.

The Alupola waterfalls is a cascade of three waterfalls. It is found by the roadside from Wewalwaththe to Alupola. The second and third waterfalls are regularly used by bathers on sunny days. During the rainy days, water from the upper reaches of Walabody come in a raging torrent and it is dangerous to go close to the bathing sites.
