Explore the well-preserved ruins of an ancient Sri Lankan civilization and its former capital at Anuradhapura, a World Heritage Site and erstwhile center of Theravada Buddhism set amidst peaceful green parks.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Tue): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ruwanwelisaya, then don't miss a visit to Jethawanaramaya Dagoba, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mihintale. Keep things going the next day: snap pictures at Gal Palama (Stone Bridge) over Malwathu Oya, stroll through Wilpattu National Park, then delve into the mystery of Sakwala Chakraya (Star Gate), and finally delve into the distant past at Moonstone or Sandakada pahana.
