ANURADHAPURA

 

This is the birth place of Sinhala civilization. Even though people have been living here since 10th century BC; Anuradhapura became a great city after Buddhism was brought in to Sri Lanka by Arahath Mahindha Thera from India in 3rd century BC. This ancient sacred city is full of picturesque ruins including huge bell shaped stupas built with clay bricks, monasteries, monuments, palaces and gigantict man made lakes which draws many local and foreign visitors daily.
