Reference: Siripada – Adam's Peak, a mountain 2.243 meters high in the western part of the island of Sri Lanka. Translated from Sinhala, it means “Mountain of Butterflies”. Buddhists consider the place sacred. At the top of the mountain there is a granite platform 21 m long and 10 m wide. It is surrounded by a 1 m high wall protecting a small open temple. Beneath it, on an outstanding rock, the “Sacred Footprint” is visible, i.e. there is a “footprint” of the Buddha, which represents a depression that has received the shape of a foot by human efforts.
