This photograph represents Isurumuniya Vihara, a troglodytic temple dating from the reign of Devanampiya Tissa (III 2nd century BC) which shelters many sculptures. Some are in their place of origin on the rock beside a square basin but the majority was transported in a small museum inside the temple. Most famous of the sculptures is that of the Lovers, prince Saliya and Asokamala if one believes the legend of it.
