Introduction

This entrance porch to the Bodhi-Tree shrine was restored by Mr. S.M, Burrows and was named after him as ‘Burrows Pavilion’. The two stone inscriptions found in its vicinity could be attributed to king Mahinda IV (956-972 A.C.) and king Kassapa V (914-923 A.C.). The ruler and regulations with regard to the administration of the Abhayagiriya monastery are inscribed on them.
