Overview
Situated together with the Baddhasima Pasada, the Kiri Vihara is the best preserved Dagoba in Polonnaruwa. Kiri Vihara is the ‘milk-white shrine’ named for its exterior of gleaming white. Its original plaster is largely intact.
This is the best preserved of Polonnaruwa’s stupas. Aptly named, this large dagoba’s whitewashed plaster has survived seven centuries of abandonment to the jungle between the collapse of the Polonnaruwa kingdom and its rediscovery in the 19th century by the British colonialists. The construction of this dagoba is credited to Subhadra, Parakramabahu’s queen.
