Anuradhapura Tours and Travels

About Anuradhapura

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.
