Kantharodai has a monument of the Tamil Buddhist civilization in Jaffna one time. It is located about 10km north of Jaffna town, and 2km west of Chunnakam. It has a cluster of twenty miniature dagobas, ranging in height from one to three meters. The dagobas have no resemblance in architecture with other Buddhist religious sites in Sri Lanka. It is believed that these are votive dagobas, and some believe that these are the shrines of the Tamil Buddhist monks. The site is reserved as an archeological site.
