Kokkichchiya Siri Sambuddha Prathiharya  Viharaya  is another creation of Aluthgama Bogamuwe Saddharansi Thero who had built the outdoor temple of  Nellikulama Siri Sambuddha Panchasathika Charikaramaya. This temples too is built as a outdoor temple in a dry zone jungle,  2 kilometers off Nellikulama Pilima Pansala in the remote village of Kokkichchiya. The temple spread over 12 acres of land, is built with scenes in various buddhist stories, all in life size statues. The main building is an 2 stories image house of thousand Buddha which is still being built.

Kokkichchiya Siri Sambuddha Prathiharya  Viharaya has no historical value and still not completed but due to its novelty  it has become a popular destination for pilgrims to Anuradhapura and pilgrims to Thantirimale Rajamaha Viharaya.

The temple can be reached by taking the road to Thanthirimale (Arippu Road) from Anuradhapura. The temple lies right by this road about 6.5 km away down this road.
