Dalukgolla Rajamaha Viharaya is another ancient Tampita Viharaya built during Kandyan Era. Tampita Viharaya is a temple built on pillars. The main image house of the temple is built on a wooden platform built on set of pillars. Most of the time the pillars are made of granite but sometime wooden pillars can be found too.
The primary reason for elevating the building off the ground is said be for the wooden building to be protected from insect such as termites.
It is here we make acquaintance with the crematory dagoba of venerable Valivita Saranankara Sangharaja, the architect of the Buddhist renaissance.
