Radella is a remote village lying close to the Heda Oya River in Panama belonging to the Lahugala Divisional Secretary area in Ampara District. Radella Wewa is an ancient reservoir in Radella built to accommodate the drainage of water from its own catchment. In 1995 and 2000 the dam of this reservoir breached due to heavy floods and after the final restoration, it supplies water to 405 ha of paddy fields.

The reservoir has now become an attraction for observing wildlife, especially birds due to its location. The tank lies 7 km off the Panama Road.

The ancient sluice, tank bunt and breakwater (ralapanawa) of the Radella reservoir has been declared as a protected archaeological site by the Government with the Gazette issued on 10th October 2014, and describes the location as follows ;

“Radella tank with an ancient sluice, tank bunt and breakwater in Radella village in Grama Niladari Division No. PP04 Panama North in the Divisional Secretary’s Division, Lahugala in Ampara District in Eastern Province. (latitude 06º 82562′ N and longitude 081º 75996′ E).”
