Ok, dont mistake it for Parripu (Dhal). Arripu is found north of Puttalam. Its known for the Doric - the mansion of the first British Governor of Ceylon. There is also a very old Dutch Fort 1 KM north of the Doric. Sadly this historical monument is falling prey to neglect. Hopefully this kiting trip would give impetus to lobby for a restoration/ protection of this part of history. For more information click HERE.
