    The Minneriya National Park proves to be one of the oldest national parks in the country, as it was named a wildlife sanctuary in 1938 and was subsequently declared a national park in 1997. Built during the 3rd century BC by King Mahasen, the main reason for this 8,000 hectare land to be declared as a national park was to protect the catchment of the Minneriya Tank that still proves to be vital for agriculture and also serves to be a vital feeding ground for wildlife. ‘The Gathering of Elephants’ that can be experienced in the park during the months of August and September has been declared to be one of the more unique spectacles in Asia, as it boasts of one of the largest gatherings of Asian elephants in one spot to feed on the rich, tender grass and drink from the Minneriya Tank. According to the Wildlife Conservation Department, 24 species of mammals, 160 species of birds, 9 species of amphibians, 25 species of reptiles, 26 species of fish, and 75 species of butterflies have been recorded to take shelter in the park.
