Th Monastery itself, is serene and Peaceful. In 2016, during our visit to Sri Lanka, we wanted to distribute school supplies to children in Anuradhapura. The monks helped us find a school and guided us throughout the event.

I visited the monastery with my wife in 2016. We needed some guidance to venerate the Great Stupa - The Ruwanweli Maha Seya. The monks at the monastery helped us to make our visit successful.
