In the past people were unable to go down in to the well and check its depth with skin diving. But it was not successful. So they named it as bottomless well that is located Nilavarai. This is one of the popular tourist destination in the North. Even local scool children used to visit here and look around in this place. Actually this is not a tourist attraction.
Recently Sri Lanka Navy divers went down with robotic diving unit and measured the depth of the well and they declared that the well goes down up to 52.5 meters in depth. Around 18 meters are with fresh water from the top surface and below is with salty water. People used to say this well was made by the Legendary Indian King Rama to quench the thirst of his wife Queen Sita.
