Kirinda Vihara Maha Devi Temple  A Buddhist sacred place was originally built in the 3rd
century BC by King “Kawantissa.” It has a massive, standing Buddha figure and a stupa.
Devotees traveling to Kataragama on pilgrimage frequently visit it.
The temple is situated at the summit of the mountain, which may be reached via the paved
staircase cut out of the rock. (Now cement staircase is there) The standing Buddha statue
can be reached by following the route on the side once you reach the top of the stairs.
The 360-degree view of the summit is eye-catching. Kirinda Beach fishing harbor and the
long view of the shore are stunning. If the surroundings are clear, you’ll be able to see two
lighthouses, namely the Great Basses Reef and the Little Basses Reef lighthouses.
According to historical mythology, Queen ‘Viharamahadevi’ was the temple’s patron saint.
Because of the flooding caused by the rising water level in ‘Kelaniya’ during that period,
the locals believed that God was punishing them for the king’s sin of ordering the murder
of a monk. Consequently, the monarch was asked to sacrifice Princess ‘Viharamahadevi’,
whom he had set ashore, in order to atone for his sins. Consequently, Princess
‘Viharamadevi’, the courageous young princess, had come ashore at a location known as
Doreva, Kirinda. She was welcomed into the region by King Kavantissa, who was in charge
of the Ruhunu kingdom at the time, and they later got married. In order to honor this
occasion, the king built the Kirinda temple.
