Yapahuwa

Yapahuwa was one of the short-lived capitals of medieval Sri Lanka in the later part of the 13th Century. The citadel of Yapahuwa lying midway between Kurunagala and Anuradhapura was built around a huge granite rock rising quickly almost a hundred meters above the surrounding lowlands. This is also built on a huge, 90 meter high rock boulder in the style of the Sigiriya rock fortress The Pandyans of South India invaded Sri Lanka once again, and succeeded in capturing Sacred Tooth Relic. Following its capture, Yapahuwa was largely abandoned and inhabited by Buddhist monks and religious ascetics. On top of the rock are the remains of a stupa, a Bodhi tree enclosure, and a rock shelter/cave used by Buddhist monks, indicating that earlier this site was used as a Buddhist monastery, like many boulders and hills in the area.
