Share This Page

Guided excursion. Aluthapola Temple (Duration 3 hours)

The Aluthapola temple was built by King Walagamba, who ruled Anuradapura in B.C 103.

During this era  invaders who came from India had captured Anuradapura.

The king, having lost the battle went into hiding and one of his hiding retreats is  known as the Aluthapola temple which was built under a cave.

Since the king was highly involved in politics and religious affairs, the temple complex is still dominated by the local priests.
