Lanka patuna

Lankapatuna  Samudragiri Viharaya at Trincomalee  is said to be lieing in the exact location where the Prince Dantha and Princess Hemamala landed in Sri Lanka with the tooth relic of the Buddha. This is one of most ancient temples in Trincomalee. Buddhist ruins scatter in a area of about 50 acres which belong to the temple.

The ancient Buddhist ruins of the Lankapatuna Viharaya  had been destroyed by the LTTE terrorists in late 1990’s or early 2000’s and has built an Hindu kovil in 2003. They have used it for erecting a radio transmission tower for their clandestine operations. But with the destruction of the LTTE in 2009, a new stupa has been built and the temple is maintained with the support of the armed forces.

Ven Ellawala Medhananda Thera has recognized the ruins of an ancient Buddhist temple at this location. A ruined Dageba has been now excavated. A stony rock with six epigraphs had been demolished to fix the LTTE radio transmission tower 120-feet height. Korawak Gal and many other evidence has also been found at this site
