This wonderful monument built by King Dutugamunu has been restored recently, it was in ruins, but restored to its original state.
It has many legends & something to do with a Chilli curry, hence the name "Mirisavetiya" Miris means chilli in Sinhala.
Well worth visiting this place, but make sure its not in the afternoon as the sun makes the place hot, since we are not allowed to cover our heads & feet(as a mark of respect) its better to visit this place, early morning, mid morning or late evening.
