Our Values .......

Out of the monuments situated at the temple premises the main monument is the ancient architectural "Watadageya". The walls of inner hall of this structure are decorated with two rows of beautiful paintings. The paintings of upper row are based on Sambula Jathakaya and Themiya Jathakaya,while the lower row is based on Dhamsoda Jathakaya. In addition to that there are two paintings in the back wall which are incomplete. The paintings are not the originals. These paintings had been restored during the latter part of 19th and beginning of 20thcentaury. The pealed off sections of the existing paintings revealed that the original paintings belong to Kandy era. The roof of Watadagaya consist of two tiers sloping in four directions The top of the roof is crowned with a pinnacle. The remnants of some parts ancient architectural structures such as Nidngala, ancient stone pillars and Padalasa Gala available in the temple premises depicts the archeological importance of this temple.
