Statue of the Bodhisatthwa at Maligawila near Buththala, Sri Lanka.

The Mahayana inspired monument of a Bodhisatthwa depicted above was not seen in the mid 1960s when I visited the fallen down statue of Lord Buddha nearby. The statue of Lord Buddha was restored to its erect posture and the statue of a Bodhisatthwa has been renovated during the time of the Premiership of Mr. Premadasa.
