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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Anuradhapura: Sigiriya (in Sigiriya) and Habarana (Dhilip De Alwis & Spas). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Mihintale, take in the views from Gal Palama (Stone Bridge) over Malwathu Oya, delve into the distant past at Moonstone or Sandakada pahana, and delve into the mystery of Sakwala Chakraya (Star Gate).

For photos, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Anuradhapura online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
