Anuradhapura Tours and Travels
The fascinating ancient city of Anuradhapura was the first capital of the Sinhala kings,and undoubtedly the grandest city of ancient Sri Lanka. The sprawling complex contains a delightful array of treasures from towering dagobas (Buddhist stupa), evocative decaying temples and attractive ancient pools. Here you'll also find Sri Maha Bodhi, the Sacred Bo-Tree, brought to Sri Lanka as a sapling from the tree under which Buddha is said to have become enlightened. At over 2,200 years old it is the oldest historically documented tree in the world.Read More
