Embilipitiya gains its name from an ancient incident where a Kandyan king ordered the minister of the area to be executed. Nowadays, even though the town is relatively low key, it offers visitors an interesting stay as the infrastructure has been developed and modernized. The area is home to Chandrika Wawe which is a man made reservoir and which attracts many varieties of birds. Embilipitiya is in very close proximity to the Udawalawe National Park and the Soriyawewa International Cricket Stadium. Thanks to the newly opened Mattala Airport travel to Embilipitya has become very convenient.
