Saman devalaya

Sabaragamuwa Maha Saman Devalaya is situated on a high ground near the Kalu River on the left side of the main road, three kilometers from Ratnapura on the Ratnapura-Panadura main road. The shrine was built by King Aryakamadeva on the orders of King Parakumba II of the Dambadeni era. The Saman Devala, which was renovated during the reigns of Sri Parakramabahu II, Rajasinha and Rajasingha II, is today one of the most prominent places in the Sabaragamuwa Province. The sacred rituals, rituals and social clans that have been built around the devale bring great value not only to the historical value but also to the cultural value. The daily worship and quarter offerings are important aspects of the temple.
