Heritage Sites of Sri Lanka

“When the Guide of the World, having accomplished the salvation of the whole world and having reached the utmost stage of blissful rest, was lying on the bed of his nibbana; in the midst of the great assembly of gods, he, the great sage, the greatest of those who have speech, spoke to Sakka’ who stood there near him: `Vijaya, son of king Sihabahu, is come to Lanka from the country of Lala, together with seven hundred followers. In Lanka, O lord of gods, will my religion be established, therefore carefully protect him with his followers and Lanka.

“When the lord of gods heard the words of the Buddha he from respect handed over the guardianship of Lanka to the god who is in colour like the lotus. “

      They are not catorized by district. But you could go to one site in Ampara, open the google map, zoom out the map and see all the other sites close by. New sites will appear as you move the map.

    අලුත් කරාට පස්සේ ඓතිහාසික ස්ථාන සොයාගැනීම අපහසුයි. කලින් තිබුණු විදිය හොඳයි. මේකෙදි හරියටම ස්ථානය දැනගෙන සොයාගෙන කියවන්න වෙන්නේ. කලින් නම් සියලු ස්ථාන පහළට පහළට එකින් එක බලන්න පුළුවන්කම තිබුණා.
