3 Archaeological officers said the findings dated back to the 1st and the 2nd centuries of the Anuradhapura era.  


Vavuniya District Asst Director of Archaeology R.G.Jayatilleka said the structure built of kabook, was about 6.70 metres from the ground, and that it had emerged to a height of  three metres during excavations.
