Built during the Anuradhapura era over 2000 years ago, the Medirigiriya Vatadage is the centrepiece of a monastery, the Medirigiriya Watadageya. This architectural masterpiece was created to house the buddhist stūpa within it. The stūpa was surrounded by the stone pillars that are still visible today, and this structure is a good example of the stone craftsmanship practiced in ancient Sri Lanka.
The Zamani Project spatially documented the Medirigiriya Vatadage in 2019. The Vatadage, the stūpa; Image House 1 and Image House 2 were documented.
