Dambakola Patuna Sangamitta Temple
The Dambakola Patuwa was used as a port in historical times. This area is considered as the place where Theri Sangamiththa landed with the Bo Sapling. According to historical records, king Devanampiyathissa (250-210 BC) visited Dambakolapatuna to welcome the guests and the Bo Sapling was later planted in Anuradapura. That’s is the most sacred Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya. Dambakola Patuna Viharaya (Jambokola Viharaya) was built to commemorate this event. Today we can’t see any historical structures in this site and the most of the things are recently built ones.
