Batticola district is seated on the eastern coast of the island, Sri Lanka. As the district consists of three famous lagoons and surrounded by Indian Ocean to the East, it’s rich in aquatic creatures. Which result in providing a moral name “Land of the singing fish”. The natives believe that can listen to the musical sound of (aquatic creatures) fish near the Batticola lagoon, especially on full moon day. They relate some believable evidence and the sound broadcasted by Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation is one among them.
