Kirti Sri Rajasimha built this temple in the royal garden in Kundasale. Nothing much is left of this temple today except the image house with a sedant Buddha statue under a Makara Torana. The Viharaya has a Mandapaya on wooden pillars and Antaralaya cum garbha with a Makara Torana at the entrances. The interior wood has been painted over with murals at the time of its construction. But it has been over painted recently with modern art and so depreciated its former value. The gateway to the Viharaya is in the shape of an old Ambalama with flat tiles.
