History of Bandaragama Divisional Secretariat

The Bandaragama Division is bordered by 5737 hectares in the Kalutara district of the North from the Colombo District and the Horana Divisional Secretariat in the East, Milleniya and Kalutara Divisional Secretariats in the South and the Panadura Divisional Secretariat from the West.

Increasingly, this division secretariat division which was divided into 36 Grama Niladhari divisions prior to 1982 had been divided into 103 GN divisions. In the early part of 1998, administrative divisions were divided into two divisions such as Millaniya and Bandaragama for the convenience of the divisional secretariats of Panadura and Horana divisional secretariats. There were 59 divisions in Bandaragama Divisional Secretariat Division and Millaniya Divisional Secretariat Division of 44 Divisions.
A large population of people lived in the divisional secretariat division of the Bandaragama Divisional Secretariat Division before the separation of the ancient Pathahewatta Raja Maha Viharaya Millenium Division from the division of the Raigam Bandara in the Vidadagama area of ​​Vidagama. 
There are no specific geographical features in this division and about 90% of the land is in the flat terrain. In terms of land use, the home garden area is 2806 hectares. The total land area is 48.9%. There are 1507 cultivated lands. Coconut, rubber and main crops are cultivated as crops, and tea cultivation has been developing in recent times.

This division belongs to WL 4 zone according to the classification of agro ecological zones.The southwestern monsoon wind receives the main rainfall in the area and the sun rays are experienced throughout the year due to lack of windy periods and good rainfall. Many areas of this division have better environmental conditions for crop cultivation.
Another important feature here is the high road density and it's like a very developed road system. The main road is the Ratnapura road and there is also a main road along the Kesbewa-Bandaragama road. The new Galle Road is also very popular.

The main Administrative Service Center is the Bandaragama town. Rathnapura Horana is the main road to Kalutara and Kesbewa. There is a massive development in the city due to the existence of a expressway. However, it seems that there are still underdeveloped areas in the inner part of the division. Flexible facilities have to be provided to this area.
This ayurvedic environment is still preserved due to the fact that this Divisional Secretariat is still largely rural.

This beauty is also found in the Bandaragama division.
