||An ancient Buddhist monastery situated on the low, rocky hill at Saṁgamuva, a village about two miles to the north-east of Gokarälla, in the Häḍahaya Kōraḷē of the Kuruṇǟgala District. The neighbouring Meddeketiya tank, when full, approaches almost to the foot of the hill on the eastern side, along which ran the old path leading to the shrines and monastic dwellings. A series of over one hundred steps, cut into the bare side of the rock, lead up the side of the hill to a plateau, upon which stand the ruins of an old stupa and other monastic buildings. A twelfth-century inscription detailing a peace treaty between Gajabāhu II and Parakramabāhu I (IN03153) is engraved at the top of the steps, to the left as one ascends the hill. The modern vihara is also in this area, together with a flat rock bearing fragmentary traces of several inscriptions, which may be dated on palaeographic grounds between the fifth and seventh centuries. From the plateau, rough stone steps lead to a shrine, dating from the Kandyan period, built in a cave near the top of the hill. A pre-Christian Brāhmī inscription is incised on the drip-ledge of the cave, though it is now concealed by a later wall. In the vicinity of this shrine, a gigantic rock boulder, under which was another, more spacious cave, has tumbled down at an unknown period, damaging the Brāhmī inscription on its drip-ledge. There are four more caves at the site: two near the shrine, one at the foot of the hill close to the tank, and the last, the most spacious one at the site, about 100 yards to the south of the shrine.
