The Challura Vapi which was built by King Mahasena is identified as Hurulu Wewa today.

The contemporary rehabilitation work was undertaken in 1940’s. According to the records of Irrigation Department, the tank was filled for the first time after rehabilitation on 10th July 1949. Although the rehabilitation work was completed in 1953, the Great Flood in 1957 washed a way the bund of Hurulu Wewa. The second phase of Hurulu wewa was completed in 1958.

In 1976 Hurulu Wewa received Mahaweli Water under the Mahaweli Development Scheme. There were faults on the feeder canal which made difficulties in supplying water from the source to Hurulu Wewa. A detailed study done later has enabled Mahaweli Authority to regularize water supply to this tank.
