This Buddhist temple known as the ‘Ambagahapitiya Mula Maha Viharaya’, it had once in fact been the residence of a Sinhalese aristocrat. It is said to have been built in the year 1750. What is really interesting that the Buddhist script known as the ‘Sathi Patthana Suuththara’ is written (in Sinhala alphabet) on walls of the main building of the temple as seen in the photograph.
I have not seen such a decoration in any other place in Sri Lanka.
