Sandagiri Wehera

Description

Also called the Sandagiri Stupa, this structure is best chronicled in history for storing precious relics and artefacts, including the forehead relic of the Buddha. Whilst most of the island is sacred for Buddhists, Tissamaharama is particularly so, as it’s known to contain some 16 holy sites out of all in the island, being the location where the Lord Buddha is said to have arrived on his 3rd visit to the island.
