Batahirarama - Site A
This is a special type of monastery built for monks engaged in meditation. Constructed to a special architectural tradition, this place is situated at a distance from the main monasteries and human settlements. Quite often this place is constructed as a twin structure on a rock outcrop surrounded by a moat. Although carvings and sculptures are not used in the construction of this type of monastic buildings, urinal and lavatory structures have been built with ornate carvings.
