Jethavanarama Image House I
Architecturally this image house with a vaulted roof of brick masonry is a "Gedige" typed building. Stylistically it belongs to the latter Anuradhapura period. Judging by the size of the 3 meters tall stone door frame, stone reliquary and the lotus pedestal, this may have housed a colossal standing image of the Buddha. The sanctum is paved with stone slabs, which is surrounded by a circumambulatory path and in front there is a vestibule and an entresol. Indications are that the reliquary and the lotus - pedestal had been destroyed by fire. There is evidence that there had been two subsidiary image houses on either side of this shrine.
