Bogaswewa is an ancient village between Vavuniya and Padaviya. Bogaswewa is reached from Vavuniya passing multiple ancient Buddhist settlements. Etambagaskada, Erupothana, Mamaduwa and Sapumalgaskada are some of the sites which you would pass to reach Bogaswewa.

Rev Medhananda describes this site as located in a chenna cultivated by the villagers of Bogaswewa. The ruins are found at a higher elevation. The villagers have separated this area for worshipping. A structure 24′ x 20′ with 10 upright pillars and 20 in lying position is seen here. A Sri Pathula gala lies by a side. There is a dilapidated stupa, 40′ radius and 18′ in height.
