This rock temple dates back to 3rd century BC and was established by King Devanampiya Tissa. It is Aluvihare that Buddhist council of 500 monks gathered and decided to pen down the Buddha Dhamma. Hence, the Tripitaka was written in Pali on palm leaves to preserve the three baskets of teachings. There were three manuscripts drawn and one of them was enshrined at Aluvihare.
