Poson Poya is in second importance to Vesak since it commemorates the introduction of Buddhism to Sri Lanka in 247BC. The focus of this festival is the ancient capital of the country, Anuradhapura, and the mountainous Mihintale Temple reached by 1840 steps, where king Devanampiyathissa was converted to Buddhism in the third century BC. During Poson, the mountain is illuminated and deveotees climb the steps in their thousands to pay homage to the event.
