When they observed hundreds of butterflies migrating in the direction of "Sripada" (the sacred mountain which the Buddhists imagine the Buddha's foot print was stamped) throughout the pilgrim season, they believed that the butterflies have been migrating to pay homage to the Buddha. Thus they went to the extent of naming probably the most sacred mountain of Sri Lanka, the Sripada, as "Samanala kanda".
