Kahandawa Purana Rajamaha Viharaya

Kahandawa Purana Rajamaha Viharaya is an ancient Buddhist temple located in the Kahandava district in Rekawa, on the way TissamaharamaTangalle . The temple belongs to the department of the secretariat of the Tangalle district.
Vihara goes back to the early period Anuradhapura. This is evidenced by the inscriptions on the old Sinhalese language, carved into stone on the Brahmi alphabets, found on the site of the temple. According to legends, the temple got its name from the yellow eel. As they say, the eel of yellow color was the keeper of the treasures enclosed inside the ancient temple daghoba. The rock on which the Dagobah is based still keeps three inscriptions dating back to the 2nd-3rd centuries AD.The remains and ruins in some caves of the temple indicate that Buddhist monks found shelter here during the fixed historical period of time. But recent research conducted by the Department of Archeology of Sri Lanka, proved the fact that in the caves there were also prehistoric settlements of people.
