According to the legends, one day the King Dutugemunu had gone to Tissa Wewa for a bath leaving the scepter here. Once he returns to the scepter, it is said that it could not be moved from that place. As a result, the King has constructed this Stupa on the place where the scepter stuck.
It is also said that it had been a practice of the King Dutugemununu offering foods to Buddhist monks before he consumes them. However, one day he has forgotten to offer a food made or of chilly. As an apology for this, the king has named this stupa as Mirisawetiya (the Sinhala word “Miris” has the meaning of chilly). The stupa has been renovated later by a number of kings.
