|DS Division||Koralai Pattu South|
Kudumbimalai in Tamil translates to Hair-knot-rock. British colonists from the past named the rock Baron's Cap.
Kudumbimalai was under the control of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and was strategically important to the organization. In 2007, the Sri Lankan army captured the town from the LTTE in a decisive battle that permanently evicted the LTTE from the Eastern Province.
