According to ancient chronicle Sinhala Bodhiwamsa, 32 saplings of sacred figs, which were sprouted from Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi, were planted in various parts of the country as instructed by Arahant Mahinda Thera. Further the chronicle states that this Bodhi tree existed intact till the 15th century AD.
However, it is said that the Buddhist public began to view this place as a sacred place after a Pandyan prince named Wickrema Pandya planted a Bodhi tree in the Pahala Maluwa of the Kaluthara Bodhi premises in 1042 AD Prince Wickrema Pandya was viceroy in the Kalutara region during this period. After the Portuguese took control of the maritime provinces of Sri Lanka in the 16th century, the site of the Kalutara Bodhiya was transformed into most likely due to the strategic importance of its location.
