Anuradhapura. The Thúpáráma Dágoba. View from the south-east. This Dágoba was built by King Déwánpiya Tissa, about 300 years before the Christian era, to enshrine the right collar-bone of Buddha. It is the oldest point of antiquity, and is always approached by the numerous pilgrims who visit the spot with the greatest possible awe and veneration. The Dágoba is constructed of stone and brick to the height of 63 feet, and has a diameter, at the base, of 59 feet. It is surrounded by 128 particularly graceful columns, arranged in three rows; those in the first row nearest the Dágoba being 52 in number and 20 feet 3 inches high from the surface of pavement, up to the capitals in the second row, 36 in number, and 19 feet 6 inches high, and in the outer row 40 in number and 17 feet 6 inches high- all the shafts being monoliths.
