Way back, during the rule of Haleri kings, the king’s secret informers would search whole village for young men’s, so that they can be trained to be a soldier for the king’s army.
In order to safeguard their young people, Puggera okka dug deep pits called ‘Nekkuli’, where they used to hide their boys, whenever they hear the movement of spies in their area. These pits were about 12 feet deep with ladders to climb in and out. The Nekkuli were designed in a such a way that, they could sit, sleep and eat inside it.
these are even now found near the puggera ainmane
