Sila Chethiya dagoba (kujja thissa Dagoba)


Sila stupa is an archaeological site located close to the Ruwanweli Seya but has not gained much recognition from tourists and pilgrims touring Anuradhapura. This Dagoba is situated in front of Ruwanweliseya, about 2 km from the railway station in Anuradhapura. It is considered that this Dagoba was constructed during King Saddhatissa, who ruled Anuradhapura during the period 119 – 137 BC. According to the Mahavansa and the Manorathapurani, the remains of Arahant Kujjatissa had levitated and moved to the place where the selachethiya is found and perform a great miracle. It is thought that this Dagaba has architectural features relating to the late Anuradhapura era. If you are visiting Anuradhapura, don't forget to check out this historically significant site.
