Kiri Vehara

From the east gate, walk along the lines of stalls selling lotus flowers to the Kiri Vehera while watching the magnificent view of a milk white large stupa with a beautiful courtyard dating from 1BC

Legend says that the sword that prince Siddhattha cut his hair off at the time of his renunciation is deposited in this stupa. According to the Dhatuvamsa the Buddha stopped here briefly during his third visit to Sri Lanka before going to Tissamaharama
