Introduction

This brick – built well, the ground plan of which is in the shape of a key, with a stone flight of steps to go down has been built for the supply of drinking water for the resident monks of Jetavana Monastery. To the east is an underground conduit connected to it. The well that had been in use for some time had been abandoned at one stage, later it had been filled with earth and a wall constructed over it.There is evidence that subsequently the wall had been broken and the well again put into use.
