Info : Yudaganawa Stupa
Yudaganawa, an unfinished stupa dating back to the 2nd Century AD provides real insight into the ancient southern Kingdom of Ruhuna.
With a circumference of 1038ft, Yudaganawa Stupa is said to have been started and unfinished by three separate kings, including King Tissa and King Dutugemunu, all of whom began work on it only to be interrupted by the onslaught of war.
The stupa is a nice spot to wander around whilst digesting your lunch from nearby Welawaya. It is a great spot to include when visiting Maligawila or Buduruwagala Standing Buddha.
We called Harriet in the UK and asked to move to a hotel with more facilities or closer to town. Our request was relayed through Colombo to the manager and resulted in a visit from the owner asking how he could make our stay better.
