An ancient bowl found at the Archaeological Museum at the ‘Tharaka Kotuwa’ (star square) in Matara was deciphered recently, and new information on the sister of Dutugemunu, who was also the daughter of Kawanthissa, was revealed.

There is no mention of such a person in the Mahavamsa, and this is the first source that provides proof of her existence.

The Ministry of Education released a communique of this discovery.
