Raswehera - රැස්වෙහෙර

Not far from Aukana, just 11 kilometers away as the crow flies, is anotherBuddha statue of almost the same size. It’s called Sasseruwa Buddha. It’s part of an ancient temple called Rasvehera. There are many different spellings for the monastery and its colossal Buddha, for example “Raswehera” or or "Reswehera" or “Ras Vehera” and “Sesuruwa” or “Saseruva”. “Sasseruwa” in Sinhalese language sounds a little bit like the words for “similar image”. And there would be good reasons for this name.
