Description
The text of the signage: This site is recognized as the place where Thera Mahinda and his entourage in 3rd century BCE took shelter on their way from Chetiya Pabbhata to the Mahavihara. The structure at the site dates to the period between 7-9th century CE and has been identified as a Pabbahata Vihara complex. The world renowned Toluwila [Toluvila] seated Buddha statue of the samādhi posture, now exhibited in the Colombo National Museum, had been discovered from an image House of this monastery. The monastery complex, which is surrounded by a moat, has unique features of the architectural style common to the Pabbhataramas.
