Thuparamaya Stupa(Dagoba ) is a historical place in sacred city of Anuradhapura in North Central Province. This is a Buddhist sacred place of veneration. Thuparamaya is the oldest stupa(Pagoda) and has a historical significance in Sri Lanka. This stupa was built by King Dewanampiyathissa . In that period Thuparamaya had a roof. But in the present we cannot see that roof in Thuparamaya.

This was the first such stupa constructed following the introduction of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. It is situated a short distance from the Lankarama Stupa(Pagoda). It believed to enshrine the collar-bone of the Buddha which was a gift from India, a testament to the cordial relationship during that time.

The stupa was destroyed several times and although originally constructed in the shape of a heap of rice, it was rebuilt in 1862 in the shape of a bell. The octagonal pillars around the Thuparamaya once supported a dome over it.
