Wrestlemania local people and other people are come here to see those important Temple.........
Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya is a 2300 year old Buddhist place of worship. Established in the times of King Devanam Piyatissa of the Anuradhapura Kingdom, one of the first saplings of the Sri Maha Bodhi Tree was planted here. Sri Maha Bodhi Tree is the tree that was brought to Sri Lanka as a sapling from India taken from the tree Lord Buddha attained Enlightenment. This is an ideal place for anyone seeking a serene temple boasting of ancient vibrations. Built around and within a giant boulder-like rock formation, the temple looks out to paddy fields and small hamlets. There is not much to walk around or to even look at, but if you would like to be a part of history that goes beyond time to the results of Kings, then this is the ideal place for you.
Wow. Amazing place. Fantastic rock formations and a wonderful temple. Very peaceful. Huge statuary. There is a expectation that you'll leave a donation.
