...A beautiful historic place located deep within the Yala National Park surrounded by jungle... an important pilgrimage centre for Buddhists... history says more than 5000 enlightened monks once lived in this place...you can see wild animals come and live freely in this temple.... Big Thanks Ravindra!!:D
Unlike the great monasteries in Anuradhapura and other towns, life at Sithulpawwa was hard and a monk or nun lived there only if they were interested in silence and solitude.
The name ‘Siththul pawwa’ was derived from ‘Cittal Pawwa’.It meant ‘The hill of the quiet mind’.
