This is a story about building "Ruwanwali Seya" in 3cd century B.C.: When King Dutugemunu found a suitable place to build the great shrine, there was a tree there which was home for a goddess named Swarnamali. The King and his subjects requested her to move away, promising to name the shrine after her.

This dance was for maestro Amaradeva's "ඔබේ නමින් සෑය බඳිමි විමානයෙන් බසිනු මැනවි" (we'll name the shrine after you, please move away from the house) song based on this story.

The photo was taken under low light conditions from far away in the audience.
