One of the most sacred places for Buddhist pilgrims and people often visit this place at least once a year. The bodhi is an ashtapala bodhiya and hence pilgrims worship this bodhi with utmost respect.

The Kiri Vehera is believed to be constructed in 6th century BC. As Buddhists, there are 16 sacred places in Sri Lanka which should visit. Kiri Vehera is one of that. According to history, this was constructed by King Mahasena.

Situated in Kataragama Sacred Garden, where the famous Devalaya also. Very relaxing place. If you visit in the evening, you can feel an amazing relaxation...
