SomawathiChaithya was built in 2nd century BC and this stupa is said to enshrine the right Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha. The SomawathiChaithya is located about 38 km from CICAgri Holiday Resort, Hingurakgoda, by the bank of the Mahaveli River ("The River of Great Sands") within the Sanctuary. The flood plains of Mahaveli River have been inhibited by a large number of wild animals ranging from elephants, wild buffalo, deer and other animals.

This Chaithya(Pagoda) had been abandoned more than fifteen years due to the threat by war.
