India history and geogprahy
Maṇi-pāsāda is the name of a building built by Sena I (833-853) and forms part of the Jetavanārāma temple complex situated in Anurādhapura.—The Maṇimekhala or Miṇimevulā-pāsāda or Maṇi-pāsāda or Miṇipā was built by Sena I who installed a gold Image of the Buddha in it. Sena II (853-887) added Images of Bodhisattas. In the reign of Udaya IV (946-954) the Colas destroyed the building and the king partly rebuilt it. Mahinda IV (956-972) restored it.
The Jetavanārāma complex (including Maṇi-pāsāda) was founded by Mahāsena (275-301) in the Jotivana Park on territory within the precincts of the Mahāvihāra. The king built it for the Mahāthera of Dakkhiṇa-vihāra. The Jetavanārāma monks were of the Sāgaliya sect which first established itself at Dakkhiṇa-vihāra in the year 253.Source: archive.org: Ceylon Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society 1963
