About The Jetavanarama Dagoba

The Jetavanarama Dagoba is a vast Buddhist shrine – once the third tallest monument in the world – in Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka believed to hold part of a sash worn by Buddha.

With its huge dome and reddish-copper hue – accounted for by the millions of burnt bricks used to build it - Jetavanarama Dagoba is an incredible structure. Its construction was begun in the third century AD by King Mahasena.
