The Buddhist and Pali University of Sri Lanka was established by the Act of Parliament No. 74 of 1981 of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and was inaugurated in 1982. The objectives of this university were the propagation of Buddhism, the development of Pali and Buddhist Studies in Sri Lanka and foreign countries and the provision of facilities for research in the relevant fields. The above-mentioned Act has been revised by the Buddhist and Pali University of Sri Lanka (Amendment) Act No. 37 of 1995. With the activation of the amendments, the affiliated institutions became defunct. The Buddhist and Pali University was restructured in accordance with the structure of the other universities of Sri Lanka.
