Today is Medin (full moon Poya day in March) Poya Day.

It is an important day in the Buddhist calendar as it is believed that it was on a day such as this that the Buddha after his enlightenment first visited Kimbulvatpura, the seat of his father King Suddhodana’s Kingdom.
This is the Samadhi Buddha Statute in Anuradhapura at mahamevna uyana.
