Thivanka Image house  


On the outside of this building one can find remarkable sculptures of lions, animated dwarfs and cherubic figures. Inside there are murals that depict tales of early medieval times such as the gods of Tusita heaven, where Buddha in his final birth as Bodhisattva was born. The function of the image house was to focus on the worshipper’s mind on the images of Buddha.
