Balapokuna Purana Viharaya at Kirulapone – බලපොකුණ විහාරය

Balapokuna Purana Viharaya

Situated on a high ground off Kirulapone, the Balapokuna temple gets its name because of the natural pond which lies within its premises. Once called the “Bata Pokuna”, the name was derived from the Sinhala word “Bata” meaning soldiers or sentries.
