Description
Signage text: "This is the place where the resident monks assembled and was known as the Sannipatasala or Sabhasala. It is a rectangular hall with long seats inside with entrances on all four sides. A special feature of this Assembly Hall is that it is erected in an easily accessible central location without boundary walls." All recent signs at the historical sites are tri-lingual, and include, as here, not only English but also the mother tongues of the two major races among the population of the island, the Sinhalese and the Tamils.
