Mihintale- Natural rock arch. Close to this is what is called the Bed of Mahindo; but it is in such a position that it could not be photographed. The natural rock has been levelled, and the bed is simply a portion of the surface, 7 feet long by 3 feet wide, surrounded by a raised fillet with tassel corners. The place was probably used by Mahinda for the purposes of repose and meditation. (Photograph)

Mihintale- The Ambastala Dágoba. This Dágoba was erected over the ashes of the great missionary Mahindo, who came to Ceylon B.C. 307, and died in the year 267 B.C. It also marks the spot where he appeared in the form of an elk to King Déwánpiya Tissa, and converted that monarch to Buddhism. It is built of brick, plastered with chunam, and measures 23 feet in diameter at the springing of the bell. Fifty-two columns in two rows surround the Dágoba; those in the inner circle numbering twenty, and in the outer circle thirty-two. The shafts are 12 feet high from pavement, and are finished with carved capitals. (Photograph)
