Saddha Tissa was a monarch of the Kingdom of Anuradhapura, based at the ancient capital of Anuradhapura
Anuradhapura
from 137 BC to 119 BC.[1] Saddha Tissa was the son of Kavan Tissa of Ruhuna
Ruhuna
and the brother of Dutthagamani. He was the ruler of Digamadulla, the present day eastern province of Sri Lanka. Since crown prince Saliya married a Chandala

girl, King Dutugamunu’s younger brother, Saddha Tissa was consecrated as King.[1] King Saddha Tissa continued the remaining work in Mahathupa. During Saddha Tissa's reign, there was a major fire in the Lovamahapaya. The king subsequently reconstructed the Lowa Maha Paaya at one third of the cost with seven levels, two less than before.[1] King Saddha Tissa built the Dighavapi

The reservoir has a capacity of 336 million cubic feet (9,500,000 m3) and a surface area of 1,230 acres (500 ha).[2] After King Saddha Tissa’s death, Mahasangha supported the second son of the king, Thulatthana.
