Muhudu Maha Viharaya

Protecting Our Past

Ancient site nr. Arugam Bay

Ancient site nr. Arugam Bay

The Muhudu Maha Viharaya situated near Pottuville is over 2,000 years old. According to the resident monk, not much emphasis has been paid to protect this very ancient structure. There has been immense encroachment and much of this wonderful monument could be lost forever. Could it be that this Buddhist Monument is in the middle of a Muslim Community or the relevant authorities just don’t care.

The background to Muhudu Maha Viharaya  could be found http://www.nation.lk/2009/03/01/eyefea1.htm

We need to protect these treasures. Its history, it’s part of Arugam Bay and its things like these that make the place so wonderful and appealing to all people.
