The historical records of ancient Uva reveal that, civilized communities ruled under some sought of well organized structure of governance have had been living in those lands even before this island became under the rule of king Vijaya, who is known to be the first Sinhalese king of Ceylon.

The third visit of Lord Buddha to Sri Lanka again had been to this area, where the sacred "Muthiyangana Raja Maha Vihara" is located at present, as our history explains. One headman known as "Indika" enthused by the voice of Lord Buddha wanted something to worship in the memory of this very holy visit of Lord Buddha. The annals say that Lord Buddha then had gifted some drops of sweat to Indika, which had immediatly turned in to pearls. This Chief had built a stupa placing these pearls in it, currently known as the famous "Muthiyangana  stupa" of Badulla city. "Indika" later had named as the superior to the hills of Namunukula and adored as a God.
