                Ancient Irrigation System in Sri Lanka is a vastly discussed topic. The inputs and outputs of this system as well as the forms and the functions of the system components have been studied, interpreted and documented since the colonial times. However, the validity and the consistency of some of those interpretations are contentious and the methodologies adopted in formulating such interpretations need to be re-addressed. This lecture attempts to provide some alternative interpretations for few system components and their possible function in the original form.
