  • This most sacred dagaba was constructed by King Kawanthissa (father of great king Dutu gamunu) in 180 BC. This dagaba contains great Bhudhas left tooth relic and forehead bone relic. This is a bubble shaped dagaba with 550 feet circumference. It is difficult to visit this place in afternoon in sunny days because floor get warmer.
  • Serenity in comprison to most buddhist shrines in Sri lanka this is my favourite for its serenity. even though it attracts large crowds going towards Kathragama, ppl only stay for a short while there fore stupa premises is largely deserted specially during working days i can spend hours there enjoying the peace and tranqulity
  • Buddhist Devotees come usually to worship this place. Surrounding shows calm and cool environment. Happy to have this kind of beautiful place for us. All buddhist around the world come to the place to worship.
  • One of the sacred places. The floor that has made by stones is very hot at sunny times.
  • Visited here at sun down it is so beautiful there... The picturesque​ view is an extra point to the value of this place with its historical and religious value.
