SRI LANKA ~ Maha Maluwa - Kandy ~

... This lovely building was part of the Maha Vasala (Royal Palace)... situated in the cultural triangle covering Anuradhapura, Dambulla and Kandy... Kandy was an ancient kingdom, renowned for its age-old tradition, architecture and its worship of the Buddhist culture... an important historic and ancient site...

The Maha Maluwa or Great Terrace is an open park, situated opposite to the Temple of the Tooth. There is a stone pillar memorial at one end of the square that houses the skull of Keppetipola Disawe, a national Sinahalese hero and a prominent leader of the Uva rebellion of 1818,  who rebelled against the British and was killed for his part in the rebellion.

The park also contains a statue of Madduma Bandara, a statute of Princess Hemamali and Prince Danthakumara, who according to legend brought the tooth of Buddha to Sri Lanka.
