Anuradhapura, the ancient royal capital of Sri Lanka, unfolds its historical tapestry to those exploring its wonders by tuk-tuk or bicycle, providing an immersive journey among 1,500-year-old ruins and majestic dagobas that continue to draw Buddhist pilgrims in large numbers.
Amidst this archaeological marvel stands the Jetavanarama, a colossal stupa constructed in the 3rd century, once reigning as the third tallest structure globally, with only the Egyptian pyramids surpassing it in height.
Another gem within the sacred precincts of Anuradhapura is the Thuparamaya Stupa, a significant Buddhist temple considered to be the earliest dagoba built on the island. Its presence echoes the deep-rooted spiritual heritage of Sri Lanka, beckoning visitors to behold the intricate architecture and immerse themselves in the serene ambiance that has endured the test of time.
As you traverse the ancient lanes of Anuradhapura, the silent whispers of bygone eras echo through each monument, offering a profound connection to the rich cultural and religious heritage that graces this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
