A canal that served as an important transportation task during the colonial rule transported spices and other materials. Although it is no longer as busy as it was in the past, it is still an important river in Negombo. The residents on both sides of the river depend on the river for their livelihoods, and the life is rich. The sanitary condition of the river is average, the water is not so clear, but the lives of fishermen are still so closely related to it.
The Dutch canal was dug by the Dutch, so it is named after it. It used to be a river with heavy traffic, but now it is not as busy as before. The river is not wide, and it is estimated that there will be six small boats in parallel. Standing on the small bridge and seeing one by one docked on the shore, it is very suitable for taking pictures.
