Welgam Viharaya - Trincomalee
According to the chronicles this temple was built by king Dhewanampiyathissa who was the first Buddhist greatest king in Anuradhapura age.Later its renovation held by greatest kings such as first king Bhathiya,second Agkbo,first Vijayabahu and first Parakramabahu.it is proven by epigraphs. The most important point is this temple was that this was warshiped by both Sinhala and Tamil Buddhist. That is one of the reason that Vilgam Vehera was not destroyed by south Indian Chola invasions in 10th century.this had become a greatest temple in Polonnaruwa age.But in Kotte age northern region of Sri Lanka as well as the welgam became a secure place to live for elephant,tiger and bear. Royal eras such as Anuradhapura,Polonnaruwa and Dhambadeniya velgam temple became the top garland of flowers to Buddhist people. But in present time you might see welgam temple complex and Manawathu nuwara have become ruins.
