After they noticed 1000's of butterflies migrating in the direction of "Sripada" (the sacred mountain which the Buddhists believe the Buddha's foot print was stamped) in the course of the pilgrim season, they believed that the butterflies had been migrating to pay homage to the Buddha. Thus they went to the extent of naming the most sacred mountain of Sri Lanka, the Sripada, as "Samanala kanda".
At current, although this migration still takes place in some areas of Sri Lanka, it could not been seen in a lot of the areas, as a consequence of human intervention on the environment. Thus it is sad to notice that a lot of the current youthful era, has not seen this nature's fascinating spectacle.
