The Lankarama Dagoba was founded in the 1st century BC by King Vattagamini Abhaya at the place where he took refuge during a Tamil invasion. Now restored, the dagoba was originally the centre of the Lankarama monastery, an auxiliary of the Abhayagiri monastery, which was also built by Vattagamini Abhaya. Three concentric circles of pillars surround the dagoba, indicating that it was contained in a vatadage with a conical roof. The Lankarama is much frequented by pilgrims.
