All over South Asia, children, as well as adults, engage in the popular pastime of making and flying kites. This is one of Sri Lanka’s favourite pastimes. Learn how to craft, launch, and fly a bamboo and paper kite of classic Sri Lankan design – naisarungal (cobra kite), wowla (fruit bat), or monara (peacock). These designs are not just cosmetic but offer different attributes in the air as well. The fruit bat, for example, is the easiest to make but the hardest to control in the air while the peacock is the exact opposite. This is one of the most unique activities available at Anuradhapura’s luxury resorts.
