At the bottom of the gigantic standing Buddha (15m), the tallest on Sri Lanka, one of the stewards watches out the beautiful rock-cut Buddha figures in Buduruwagala. The name Buduruwagala is derived from the words for Buddha (Budu), images (ruva) and stone (gala) . The figures are thought to date from around the 10th century and belong to the Mahayana Buddhist school.
