Thuparamaya is believed to be the first ever Buddhist dagoba built in Sri Lanka. Constructed in around the third century BC by King Devanampiya Tissa, Thuparamaya, which is also known as the Thuparama Dagoba, is a white domed structure in the ancient city of Anuradhapura.

The shrine is most notable for housing one of the relics of Buddha – his right collarbone – making it a pilgrimage site for Buddhists from around the world.

The sacred city of Anuradhapura was added to the Unesco world heritage list in 1982.
