  • One of most visited places in Anuradhapura. This statue is different from all other Buddha statues as it is crafted to show different views of the face of Buddha. Left, right and front views clearly show different motions of face. No fee for the entrance. Open 365 days. Ample parking space around there.
  • Symbol of skills of ancient artist! This place is considered as the best buddha statue which express the compassion, sympathetic joy and the Samadhi feelings in a single statue. Also this shows the exellent skills of the artist who made this in 1st BC. Still this statue make the utmost spiritual feeling when you be there!
  • This is known to be the most skilled Buddha statute in sri lanka. Archeologist have found evidence that the eyes of the statutes are decorated with gems and there were 4 statutes placed for each direction
  • One of the most beautiful Buddha status from ancient Anuradhapura Kingdom still in its original form. A must see place and the ambience around the place is so peaceful.
  • A very peaceful place with a lot of history. This statue is considered as the best in Sri Lanka. You can read all about it when you are there. I wish it would be better if someone is there to explain about the statue and its history to the people.
