Description
Text: "The presence of Vatadage (circular stupa shrine), Bodhi-tree Shrine, chapter house, Image house and boundary wall indicate that Lankarama had existed as an independent institution within the Abhayagiri Monastery. This institute which was established during the reign of King Valagamba (89-77 BC) was also known as Manithuparama. This may have also been a monastery for Buddhist nuns."
