This Poya marks the 2nd visit of the Buddha to Sri Lanka when Chulodara and Mahodara of the Naga tribe were quarrelling over a gem-studded throne. The Buddha intervened and created unity through the Dhamma. Buddhists visit temples to reflect and travel to the Nagadeepa Rajamaha Viharaya where the events took place.
