Ampara | Ancient Veheragala of Pulukunawa

Ancient Veheragala of Pulukunawa

The road to Pulkunawa village falls through the ruins of once a vast monastery built by a yet to be identified donor for an Arhant in the name of Pussadeva.The monastery grounds with its abundance of stone pillars of simple beauty and grace speaks of extensive construction done throughout the centuries starting from the late first century BC. The ruins scattered at the foot of the mountain consist mainly of constructions, that are in the front of the monastery including preaching halls, alms hall, pilgrim houses and intricately carved stone stairways leading to the top of the mountain.
