Kuragala Ancient Buddhist Monastery
Kuragala Ancient Buddhist Monastery known as Kuragala Rajamaha Viharaya, which has a proud history of over 2200 years, is the oldest cave temple complex in the Sabaragamuwa Province.
This sacred place is full of ruins of various historical heritages including Brahmi inscriptions which tell the world about the greatness of the Sri Lankan Bhikku dynasty. But for the past three decades or so, these historic Buddhist heritages have been in a state of disrepair.
The historic Kuragala Rajamaha Viharaya, which is revered by the Buddhists and is revered by the Buddhist community, is being rebuilt to preserve the historical heritage of the Buddhist community around the world. The initiative is being taken to preserve and reconstruct the historical heritage of the Kuragala Rajamaha Viharaya by Karmacharya Wathurakumbure Dhammaratana Thero, the founder of the Nelligala International Buddhist Center, Resident of Asgiriya Maha Vihara.
