'Nagadipa Vihara', 'Aanda-ulpatha', Mahiiyangana, Sri Lanka.

The 'Poya Ge'.
A 'Chathya'
Ant hills
The Wewa and the distant mountains.
Aandaa-ulpatha is a town on the Mahiyangana - Bibile road. A turn off to the left going on a motorable road going a few kilometers takes one to 'Nagadipa Vihara'. The history of this vihara goes back 2000 years to the time of Dutugamunu's brother Saddha Tissa who ruled this area and visited this site. There is an old dagoba and Wewa close by.
