Rankoth Vehera


Built by King Nissankamalla the Rankot Vehera or the Swarnamali Sthupaya is similar to the Ruwanwelisaya of Anurahapura. By the entrance of the Sthupaya there is a stone seat with inscriptions by Nissankamalla which explains that the king sat there and witnessed the construction of the dagaba. There is a stone pave way that leads to the compound and gateways that open at the cardinal points. The dome was constructed with a central cube which supported the superstructure, a distinctive method of Sthupa construction
