Kaludiya Pokuna

This site is closer to Kumbukkandanwala, which is about 8 km away from Sigiriya in the Dambulla Divisional Secretariat Division. Situated in a jungle area, this site had been named as Dakkhinagiri Vihara in an inscription of the ninth century. According to Mahavamsa it has been built by King Saddhatissa (137-139 BC.). It was developed by King Aggabodhi and a Chapter House has been constructed by him. Several inscriptions, some caves with inscriptions under the drip-ledges, a dagoba, pillars, a residence of monks, remains of a monastery can be seen in the site. This vihara is named after the Kaludiya Pokuna or the pond with blackish water found in the vicinity.
