  • The sacred muthiyangana temple gaining a beautiful attraction to the badulla town. I was lucky to see & worship this ancient great place.
  • History of this place goes to Load Budha's time (2600 years). Load Budha has arrived here with other monks. Stupa was build using buddha's relics. Therefore this place is a very sacred place for Buddhist people. Other than the Stupa there are several Bhoo trees in the Temple including a Bhoo tree arrived from Ananda Bhodhiya - Jethawana Temple in India. And also Atawisi Bhodins can be seen in the location
  • The icon of Badulla... Lord Buddha made His 3rd visit to Kelaniya on the invitation by a king of Naga people named Maniakkitha . During this visit, a local chieftain named Indaka invited Lord Buddha to visit his place in Badulla. At the end of sermons made by Lord Buddha there, Indaka had wanted something to worship in memory of Lord Buddha's visit. The Lord Buddha is said to have given him a few of His hairs and a few drops of sweat that turned into pearls ( mukthaka). Indaka had enshrined these sacred hair and pearls in a stupa, believed to be the stupa here.
  • This is located in the middle of Badulla town. The History of this temple goes back to the time of Buddha. At The entrance there is a colourful 'Makara Thorana'. This is very popular among Buddhist people.
