Buddhangala is a name that has recently been dropped, and it is believed that the name Buddhangala was coined because the rock here looks like a reclining Buddha statue. It is located in the Ampara Division of the Digamadulla District in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. This area is about 1280 acres and several large rock towers stand out together. Each of these boulders is separated by steep slopes and can only be climbed by separate paths.
During the rainy season, the waterways are beautiful and can be seen overflowing. Wild elephants can be seen roaming freely in the forest and it is a great miracle that none of them are harmed.
Buddhangala is also rich in biodiversity. It is also rich in water catchment areas and has a number of medicinal plants that originate and grow in it. After a trek up the cliff, the blue paddy fields that stretch across the horizon through the vast trees in the distance are a sight to behold.
Although Buddhangala is a site of great archaeological value, it seems that no archeological excavations of this value have taken place yet.
Buddhangala in the Digamadulla Kingdom was founded by Prince Deegu in the 4th century BC.
Silence reigns everywhere. That silence creates the perfect environment for meditators to meditate. Go to the Buddangala Aranya Senasana to get rid of the oppressive mentality.
