Halaba Steel Bridge is situated in the village of Halaba in Badulla. This mysterious bridge is approximately 113 m long and is built across Uma Oya where no roads have ever existed. This has caused concern as to why the British, who ruled Ceylon back in the day, had built such a massive bridge at this location. It is believed to have been built in 1919.
