Deyata Kirula (දැයට කිරුළ) Exhibition

I went there with my mother, Nadeera, her mother and Anil Aiya.
We had to stay hours in the queues that were unorganized and packed. But at last we were able to get in to just two stalls of the Army and the Air Force.

This is the replica of the Mawil-Aru Dam, where the humanitarian missions started.

There were some of the weapons and vehicles that the army and the Air-Force use in combat.

This is a 130mm cannon.

This is the Multi Barreled Rocket Launcher (MBRL), one of the major armaments of the army

The Sri Lankan Made Armored trucks. Built and maintained by the Sri Lanka Army.

The following are some pictures of the captured Submarines...
