Maligawila and Dambegoda are popular Buddhist sites in Sri Lanka. They are famous for the statues of Buddha.

Maligawila and Dambegoda

Maligawila-located about 15 km to the south of Monaragala-is famous for the two colossal statues of Buddha dating back to 7th century AD. Both the statues are carved from crystalline limestone. One of the statues is 11m high and is considered to be the world's largest free standing Buddha figure.

About 1km from Maligawila is Dambegoda where another statue of Buddha, which is 10m high and called Avalokitheswara Bodhisattva-a divine being who chooses to reside on the human plane to help ordinary people attain salvation-is located.
