“Visit if passing”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

The Temple has one of the largest Stupas in the country and dates back to 2 nd century BC. Walking around it, it doesnt look all that enormous, and I felt that Ruwanweli Seya was larger. This stupa was probably not completed and it looks like the top of it was leveled and a smaller stupa was built on top at a later stage.

This is supposedly the place price Tissa and his brother price Gamini (Dutugemunu) had an immense battle after the death of their father King Kavanthissa.

Just before the Yudaganawa car park we passed a small stupa on the left side of the road. This is the "Chulangani Viharaya" belonging to the 12th century.
