|Ruins of Madirigirija|
Ruins of Madirigirija - Dating back to the Anuradhapura period, a massive monastery complex Medirigiriya Watadageya stood here and today the main attraction is the Medirigiriya Vatadage (ancient structure). Once a place of worship, this ancient structure with a stupa (hemispherical structure containing relics) in the middle was built on a small rock circled by three concentric rings of pillars and four Buddhist statues that are all still intact, brahmi characters are etched in the stone, however the stupa (hemispherical structure containing relics) no longer remains.
