Pubbarama Archeological Reserve

Pubbarama Archeological Reserve (Sinhala: පුබ්බාරාම පුරාවිද්‍යා රක්ෂිතය) is a ruined Buddhist monastery site in Anuradhapura District, Sri Lanka. It is situated on the wayside of Anuradhapura-Rambewa highway about 1.6 km distance from the Yapane Handiya junction.

The history of this site runs back to the period between 7-10 centuries A.D. Of the two inscriptions that were discovered from this site, the one belonging to the reign of a king styled Abha Salamevan mentions that this monastery was connected to the Abhayagiri Monastery at Anuradhapura. 

This monastery has been built according to the architectural style particularly unique to the Pabbatarama Vihara. The ruins of a Stupa, a parapet wall, a moat built encircling the monastery have been discovered from this site.
