Just above the Malwatu Maha Viharaya in Kandy and near the present Wales Park on the hills is found a small but beautiful old viharaya called Naga Vimanaya. This is a supposed to be a place where Velivita Sri Saranankara Thero lived for some time.

Naga Vimanaya is apparently a monastery found in the early 17th century. Beautiful murals depicting Jataka Stories adorn the walls of the shrine and some of these are well preserved even today. This is also know as the Sangaraja Viharaya.
